The Age of Aquarius is gone!
This is the age of division….especially here in the US….we have Americans at each other’s throats over stupid shit.
Think about this…..66% of Repubs in Southern states want to secede…..https://lobotero.com/2021/07/21/succeed-or-secede/
So now the question should be why do Americans truly hate each other?
An attempt to explain…..
As we approach the 50-year anniversary of George McGovern’s landslide defeat at the hands of Richard Nixon, America’s “cold civil war” shows no signs of letting up. If anything, it’s about to reach a boiling point. Between Donald Trump’s election, the near-nationwide riots last summer, the media’s grotesque gaslighting regarding the violent activities of antifa and Black Lives Matter, the events of Jan. 6, and a continuing belief across large sections of the American right that the presidential election was in some way stolen, things are not going well in the United States.
A short list of American civil sectors operating in a state of total inadequacy and on the verge of revolution-inspiring dysfunction would include health care, higher education, housing, job training, water (and agriculture), infrastructure, and public transit. In other words, nearly every service and institution on which the majority of citizens depends.
Without question, replacing Trump with President Joe Biden represents a restoration of America’s ancien régime, but for how long? Whether due to incompetence, a lack of strong leadership, or genuine political hurdles, the Biden administration will almost certainly enact only a small fraction of its purported agenda prior to next year’s midterm elections. Then there is the question of who exactly this agenda would actually benefit.
Hatred and division are growing….resentment and loathing is becoming the norm….
Americans hating other Americans is NOT the way to heal a fractured nation.
As I stated….it keeps getting worse and worse….seems Americans care little for the nation that they Pledge Allegiance to in school….as with most oaths they mean nothing anymore.
Sadly this country will not heal in my lifetime….it all depends on the swing to nation and not the tribe.
But for now a survey showed that Americans are not at all thrilled with the direction of the country….
A majority — 55% — of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2. In the early May survey, Americans were more optimistic than pessimistic by a 28-percentage point margin. Optimism is now under water by 10 points. Looking ahead to the next 12 months, fewer than half — 45% — now report feeling optimistic about the way things are going, a significant drop from about two-thirds (64%) in the May poll.
