Of the twenty-two civilizations that have appeared in history, nineteen of them collapsed when they reached the moral state the United States is in now.

In a small town 50 miles southwest of Colorado Springs, Colorado, 8th graders (a goodly number of them) have been texting nude pictures of themselves to one another.  At the University of Missouri, a college known for its School of Journalism, reporters are being forcibly impeded from covering a student “demonstration.”  In Chicago where murders are everyday events, an innocent nine year old Black child is executed in a conflict between gang members.

It is reasonable to ask: Is it possible to salvage this culture?

The answer: It is hard to say that it is.

And why is that?  The attitudes of the Left cohorts of the late 1960’s and their political party of choice (Democrat) have corrupted the culture, destroyed its moral value, elevated politics and power over civility and human dignity and achievement.

Yes, we can thank the Left, the Democrat Party, union bosses, feminists, academia (such as it is), main stream media, the “entertainment” industry, once reliable newspapers, a failed, incompetent, corrupted, hostile and intrusive federal government, exclusively race-conscious organizations, the unionized pubic education system and a coterie of, frankly, disordered elected public figures and “celebrities.”

For things to change, we have to repudiate those who have put us at risk of collapse.  Indeed, we must become moral again and that means faithful and reverent.

There is no religion which dispenses one from the duties of morality.

Jean Jacques Rousseau

Yes, radical egalitarianism and radical individualism must be denied and those who push these positions on others confronted, held accountable, quieted and shunned.

We are in a mess at the present, a serious mess.
