And the country was, in many ways, much stronger then.- Bluto|
Good point. It was also a lot whiter. Among other things we've lost in the past 60 years.
I look back on the war years and marvel at the way the entire country got off their asses and got behind (arguably for better or worse) the war effort. I grew up during the Vietnam era, so all I've ever known is a divided populace.
We have an entire generation of people who have been given participation trophies and affirmation that their feelings should always be given careful consideration. What happens to them when they're told that they're really not special? That in order for them to be able to succeed in life, they most buckle down, listen in school (as opposed to scrolling through their iphones and heaving chairs at teachers), or they'll be no soup that night for dinner?
As I see it, there's a world full of pain coming at all of us, regardless of the directions we go. It's unavoidable. At this point, anyone who doesn't have a plan B and a plan C when (not if) the SHTF, is in for a very rude awakening.
The free shit is drying up and the time to prepare for it was yesterday. Regrettably, most of the populace is still fixated on what to post on Fartbook o the latest Tic Toc fad to take any notice.
