In our new book " A Patriot's History of the Modern World (to 1945)," we outline (for the first time ever, that my research can find), the "Four Pillars of Exceptionalism." These are Christian (mostly Protestant) religion, common law, free markets, and property rights with titles and deeds).
All of these have been damaged, but not destroyed and all can be restored.

“Christian (mostly Protestant) religion”
Would that be the Protestant religions promoting homosexuality & perversion? Maybe those that favor the Palestinian terrorists over democratic Israel?
If I had to pick the one that does not fit in this group, this one has to be it. It is sad, but lately, true. You might be right about the Protestantism of 50-100 years ago, but not today’s Protestantism.
(No, I am not Catholic!)
A better fit is morality, honor, & integrity, things sorely lacking in our society.

So Catholicism doesn’t fit into your model?
