>Governmentalism

>Between the wars and the economy, the polar ice caps melting and the growing schism between the haves and the have-nots, the world is spinning wild. One wonders sometimes if we as a species are meant to survive, or if this is the death throes of the contemporary dinosaur.

Not so far fetched if you consider the endings of other great empires…..Rome comes to mind, but it is not the only one.

Some delight in the idea of America falling to its knees….some are even consciously working on its destruction, claiming they are trying to make things better.  They say that socialism is the only way.

I disagree.  I think there is a way to blend social consciousness and individual abilities without arriving at tyranny….but pure socialism has never worked. I don’t think we really have a handle on that kind of absolute power over others without it corrupting the governing body.

Perhaps I am wrong, but history isn’t.

Most of my liberal friends think I’m a traitor.  Fine.  But I can’t lie about how I feel.  I hope and pray there is

Anyway….for today, Fifty Five Is The New Governmentalism….changes are coming, let’s hope they’re for the better.
