Between the lines, what I think Osterlund is trying to get across is to not let our relative affluence undermine our civic responsibility.
Unfortunately, that is now the persuasive language of the “progressives”, who twist such notions into sacrifice at the altar of the Public Sector.
I like the Armed Citizenry. Those old dead white men had it right a couple-hundred-and-change years ago.
I agree and we have become fat, dumb and happy so to speak. We've enjoyed our prosperity and let lapse our responsibilities especially over the last 40 years or so. Us baby boomers have not been nearly as involved as we should have been.

Yeah, we may be more "advanced" but they were not so dumb after all even if they were "evil". /s
