We suffer a far greater collapse from the evil that has crept into our social systems than from any enemy outside our borders. What we have is nearly a total breakdown in social systems and the order of law.
There are now vast segments of our population that refuse to adhere to the silent oath of citizenship and civility. It is one thing to accept multi-culturism and respect others, what we are seeing are the effects of an assault on our institutions and the norms that most Americans cherish.
Our national will is being eroded by lawlessness in the streets and in the highest political offices.
The bizarre behaviors and decisions being made by our leaders are un-necessarily making life harder, not easier in spite of the rhetoric, and outright lying. How many more times must we endure elected officials denying wrongdoing in order to run out the clock on issues, like Obama and Clinton do as a matter of fact.
How long in the face of evidence must we wait for remedies, and solution to problems that have relatively simple solutions. When will the purveyors of hate and division finally take their medicine
and admit the truth.
In 1970 Alvin Toffler wrote Future Shock, making a salient point regarding Information Overload and our inability to analyze and integrate information at the speed in which it is created. How many would be left behind never to recover, or keep up. It seems to be following Orwell's 1984 masterpiece published in 1949 on Big Brother giving us a glimpse of what we would face if everyday life were run by Big Government, or Corporations.
Are we facing the future, or looking into our past one more time?
