This year, Zooming In went to the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, better known as CPAC. We met with conservative activists and opinion leaders who are tackling the nation’s biggest challenges: the border crisis, socialism, China threat, turmoil in the Middle East, and so on. None of these challenges are easy. But the solution to all these problems ultimately hinges on who we as Americans think we are and what we stand for. Yes, we have a crisis going on in this country, but the existential threat we truly face is the threat to our identity. America was founded on an idea. This idea has carried us for over a quarter of a millennium and made us the most powerful and prosperous nation on the planet. But today, we may need to re-examine whether this idea truly facilitates mankind’s ultimate purpose. And if it does, how do we carry the torch forward?
