This country (and the world) is falling apart right before our eyes... [View all]

One weather disaster after another due to climate change that half the nation denies is happening. From gun violence to these major, apocalyptic events like what is happening in Atlanta and polar vortexes, to rampant corporate and political corruption. From the money-hoarding 1% to the downfall of the global middle class. From wars for oil and poppies to socio-political turmoil in Egypt and Ukraine, and the lack of same in places where there should be protests but there are not due to fear of government, police, and job loss. From one man-made disaster, like Fukushima, to the next, like Charleston.

[strike]I swear it feels like we are in the end times.[/strike] [font color=blue]This was tripping some people up. It was hyperbole.[/font]

I swear it feels like civilization is in decline. (Does this sufficiently remove any religious connotation to the events we're seeing in this, the second decade of the 21st Century? Still too "doom and gloom" for the times?)
