Old Songs: WHEN THE WORLD’S ON FIRE

But I think that was a sort of historical artifact; it likely wouldn’t happen today. At the time the United States was founded, it was the world’s most secular society, stressing not just toleration but genuine independence of mind. We’ve seen a curious shift over the past century or so, as Europe — once full of states which imposed religion on their peoples — has become not merely secular but generally non-believing. The United States is not merely the most Christian country in the developed world, but the nation most accustomed to odd variants on Christianity. If Olde America was the home of freethinking, New America is the home of a great rise in spiritualism (as well as oddities such as Wiccan or Shamanist beliefs). What was unthinkable a century ago is now normal.
