The Golden Age, according to Krauthammer is the current world. He assumes this considering the past horrors and ordeals experienced by Americans. For example, the Vietnamese adversely affected the American way of life. Apart from that, the Cold War challenged the nation extensively, with the Soviet Union being on their toes trying to overcome the US. Nonetheless, the country still triumphed and came out strong (Krauthammer 199).
The American politics is also an issue of discussion here. The author firmly believes that the voters always care about the things that the political parties do for them while in power. Having good accomplishments then running out of ideas leads to the removal from governance by the citizens, as they know exactly what they want from the leaders (Krauthammer 201). The current state of the nation seems more improved in different ways as the rate of crime has dropped considerably while the economy continues to thrive. Nevertheless, the writer acknowledges that good times never last long thus the people should enjoy these moments to the maximum before time runs out.
