The Americans no longer live in the United States. Instead we live in states of alternate realities, never crossing paths until the next election.
On empires – It’s hard to fall back without falling down.
There is a continuing problem in this country in which politicians tend to focus on the effect rather than the cause. To see crime instead of the poverty behind it is near sighted and narrow minded; a dangerous combination in the forces that drive our nation. People commit crimes to avoid or improve their lives. Why don’t we work towards a community in which improvement is available to those with less through means other than crime? When we fail to address our failings of sight we suffer the crash.
