We’re at war with everyone. We spy on our own citizens. Our infrastructure is crumbling but nobody wants to pay for the upkeep. We seem headed for a police state or a prison state when we could be educating, healing, and building something other than walls. Civil discourse is no longer civil. Becoming a more diverse country has people worried. Nativism and Islamophobia are now the “new antisemitism.” We keep poking our noses in every country of the Middle East. We live in fear. We hate our neighbors. We’ve lost sight of what the purpose of a society is. It’s every man for himself, and the economic system isn’t working for 99% of the country. We’ve sealed the borders and become a new Hermit Kingdom.
And now we have a proto-fascist in the White House. Resist while you can.
