Ко зна колико је Срба са сиромашног Балкана кретало у свет „трбухом за крухом“. У 19. и 20. веку велики број њих се из економских, а после II светског рата и политичких разлога иселио у САД, у потрази за својим местом под сунцем, желећи да оствари оно што се обично назива „америчким сном“. Где год у свету да су се налазили, Срби су увек били узорни грађани и одани држављани земаља које су их „хлебом храниле“. Тамо су давали велики допринос привреди, науци, култури, а у последњих неколико деценија и у спорту. Такав је случај и са Србима насељеним у САД. Међутим, често се забораавља колики је значај српских исељеника у војној историји Сједињених Држава. Процењује се да је у оружаним снагама САД од почетка 20. века до данас служило око 160.000 Срба, од којих су неки стекли највише војне чинове. За учешће у ратовима и допринос одбрани САД огроман број њих је одликован највишим војним одликовањима, а многи се убрајају међу најодликованије војнике у америчкој историји.
Rare are the books of Orthodox Christian authors that deal with the subject of politics in a comprehensive way. It is taken for granted that politics has to do with the secularized (legal) protection of human rights (a reproduction of the philosophy of the Enlightenment), within the political system of so-called "representative democracy", which is limited mostly to social utility or to the conventional rules of human relations.
Most Christians look at politics and democracy as unrelated with their experience of the Church herself, which abides both in history and in the Kingdom, the eschaton.
Today, the commercialization of politics—its submission to the laws of publicity and the brainwashing of the masses—has literally abolished the "representative" parliamentary system. So, why bother with politics when every citizen of so-called developed societies has a direct everyday experience of the rapid decline and alienation of the fundamental aspects of modernity?
