SNAFU Solomon asks an important question:
Between real life, the various social issues, the issues with our own govt, covid hangover, the world at war (or most of it), illegal immigration, crime, the economy and an exploding federal budget (I know I missed many other things) how much longer before society just breaks? I don't know if its my imagination but it sure seems like this is just too much to be coincidence ... We're getting fire hosed every ****ing day.
I can't help but wonder the same thing sometimes. It's been my experience in the Third World that things can stumble along under an ever-increasing weight of problems . . . until the day comes when something suddenly snaps and the machetes come out. Then you have violence across society, in every town and city, until there's been enough to reach a catharsis and a trembling, shaky peace ensues - until the next time.
How close are we to the machetes coming out? In our case, they probably won't be machetes, but the end result won't be much different, regardless of the weapon.
