``that there is little about modern America to be for''

So long as you ignore the Fundis and official Washington, there would seem a fair amount to be for: a mess of quality scholars and scientists and artists, some still beautiful scenery, some of the best orchestras, opera companies, chamber ensembles, singers, and instrumentalists around, some of the most vibrant cities around (NYC, for all its problems, for example), etc. Unfortunately, the US also has more stupid, ill-educated, and delusional people than other developed countries, which is disturbing given the length of time that the US has been a developed country.
