“For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken falsehood, your tongue mutters wickedness. No one sues righteously and no one pleads honestly. They trust in confusion and speak lies; they conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity. They hatch adders’ eggs and weave the spider’s web; He who eats of their eggs dies, And from that which is crushed a snake breaks forth.…”
Well, the world has come full circle again. Just fifty years from the last bunch of young people who thought they were the salvation of the world, a new crop has now arisen. And like the 1960’s world changers whose simplistic approach brought nothing but chaos, so will this generations.
The tragedy is that they are unaware of it. Philosophy trumps wisdom. In their mind they care and share more than the rest of us mere mortals, and jingoisms trump wisdom. So once again, they tear at the fabric of civilization, and thinking themselves wise, have become fools.
Civilization survived my generation’s hubris, barely. Will it survive this one?
Once again, man proves he cannot live free. He needs strong tyrants standing on his neck.
It was a grand experiment, America. However, your days of freedom are nigh over.
May I die before it happens.
