Pairagraph is an interesting site, with an interesting starting dialog about whether America is in decline that Om Malik is participating in. I find my reaction is less about whether or not I agree with Om as much as the fact that he appears to associate Amercia’s not decline with wealth. Fixation on wealth as a measure of success is a uniquely human problem that is becoming more problematic, particularly for the United States. Should freedom and liberty be defined in wealth terms?

As to the site… why couldn’t the dialog occur between two people writing on their own blogs?
