As a student of history, it is important that unbiased evaluation overrides political, social, or personal leanings. I have written numerous blogs on politics, corona virus and events that are shaping our country, each designed to educate not alienate. However, I see in the near future a national crisis approaching that unnerves me. The time has come to state the obvious; ”we are losing our country” to radical forces hiding beneath the thin veil of constitutional amendments.
America is polarized by relentless banter on radio, TV, and the internet. Mainstream media allows “talking heads” to make their case for/against impeachment by repeating the same words and phrases approved by their “corporate” bosses. It’s like watching a movie in fast motion where no one can really follow the storyline. It’s not only maddening, it’s intentional. Information overload is the perfect tool for creating followers, instead of thinkers. When people aren’t willing to listen, discussion stops, and sides are chosen. Less citizen participation means politicians get their way. The only recourse is to understand the system. After all, IT’S YOUR SYSTEM!!
