As a nation, America has lost its story.
Where we came from is being erased; our historical monuments are being toppled; our founding fathers are being despised;
Where we are is a seriously divided country whose people have lost their precious freedom of speech and other constitutional rights; a country that has a newfound hatred of itself. There is great distrust of our system of elections; there is rampant corruption among our elected representatives, the press has assumed a bias in favor of one party. The justice system is being replaced by mob rule. Children are being indoctrinated with counter culture. Fear of COVID and climate change is being stoked; people are no longer individuals but identities. Big corporations are out of control. And much more.
Where we are going is not clear and certainly not promising.
A country that has no story cannot entertain promises. How can we hope to address the very serious problems that we face?
