The Decline Of Civilization In U.S.
Editor: In these turbulent times of ours, do you ever wonder if our country is going toward the ascendency or decline of civilization? To find out, ask yourself these questions about statements and events that have been reported in the news lately. Do you believe only one race can be racist? Do you believe a person is guilty until proven innocent and the burden of proof of innocence is on the accused? Do you believe gender, not evidence, should be a determining factor into whether you are to be believed as truthful or not? Do you believe social justice protestors, with bought-and-paid-for signs deserve veteran status? Do you believe children and teens who are too tired to go to school early should also be allowed to be too tired to go to work on time when they are adults? Do you believe protestors have the right to harass and publish their opponents’ home addresses and phone numbers on social media? Do you value animal life over human life? Do you want to live in a society that worships money and power over moral decency? Do you want to live in a society that justifies the ends over the means, even if those means are violent, untruthful or illegal? Do you want to live in a country with no Electoral College in which elections would only take into account the wishes of high population states? Do you want to live in a society ruled by mob justice instead of the rule of law? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you just might be part of the decline of civilization in our country, and God help us all if that is true. J.E. Smith LARKSVILLE
