Our Finest Hour

The video below represents what many people consider America's darkest hour. If you've seen the resignation of Richard Nixon before, it might have been a while.

I would posit that the resignation of Richard Nixon was not America's darkest hour, but one of its greatest.

It stands as proof that for all the fears about the military-industrial complex (which were never greater than in the early seventies) for all the fears about globalism and the degradation of the American Dream, the premise that ours is a government of the people and by the people and for the people, where the government fears us rather than the other way around was never more evident than in the moment when Richard Nixon resigned as President of the United States.
