Just in Case it Matters to You
PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN!
Once upon a quieter time, looking backward from today, our world seemed pretty stable in most important ways.
Folks woke up most mornings with ‘great new day’ perception, and little wasted energy on the last bizarre election.
Just a few decades later, the picture greatly changed as Progressivism fomented a country much deranged.
Everywhere, 24/7 news always clamoring about those dangerous ‘Identity Groups,’ creating anxiety and doubt
with urgent hourly issues always critical to our lives, but most unable or willing to simply recognize
that Talking Heads and biased ‘news’ do not reflect Reality, and often fail to reflect even the simplest shreds of sanity.
While propaganda diverts us from issues that really matter, culture fast evaporates, the American Dream gets shattered.
Power struggles, gender politics, demands for Reparation, while social media applauds nuclear family separation,
with religious wars still raging after many thousand years, but media and politicians play to peoples’ fears.
Democracy in tatters, capitalism on the run, felons mass-released from prisons, criminals allowed to carry guns.
Government regulations increasing every year, as censorship increases and freedoms disappear.
The Dream’s become a figment of generations past, ‘Retirement’ for too many now a dream with little chance.
It’s safe to say that most were shocked by last election results, which clearly demonstrated the Nation’s changing pulse.
For sure, too late to wrestle back that once-upon-a-time when Stability was a good thing, when Security felt just fine,
when elected leaders were trusted to serve the common good, and workers simply did their best to provide as best they could.
Being American is a privilege that way too few respect, now watching their dreams drift away, due mostly to neglect.
Stupidly and shamefully, now too late to turn around a disappearing culture, from behavior run aground
by Progressive Activists with most media support, attacking anyone with differing views, promoting ‘socialism’ for sport.
Fueled by Activists and billionaires pursuing power/ money/ fame, as widening partisanship keeps Others always at blame,
perceiving most opposed perspective as purely ‘anti-me,’ unwilling to even listen to positions contradictory,
with ‘feelings’ emanating from fake or biased news, while Confirmation Bias negates all opposing views.
We see implosion everywhere at an ever-increasing pace, on a path to where democracy could find itself erased.
One by one, structures crumble – authority, politics, religion, respect for others’ cultures, family values or tradition –
with priorities mostly focused on personal ‘rights’ and ‘feel,’ not country or community but rather ‘What’s In It For Me!’
Anger and antagonism keep increasing at a pace which has torn the country wide apart. What a tragic waste!
From all appearance, at this point, from all we’ve failed to learn, we’re truly heading rapidly toward massive crash & burn,
and America sadly heading past the Point of No Return!
