Damn…this completely fucked up my optimist’s vibe today. A temporarily disheartening article, and a totally sobering one. When the architecture of trust a society builds over a long period of time comes under assault, only societies that have the ability to rebuild and repair themselves during and after collapses will endure. I remain eternally confident America has this ability. Although the current infection of ignorance and hate coursing through the nation from leadership on through, is something to be very worried about and vigilant against. I’m just hoping there are more thoughtful warriors in the world than there are mean assholes who disdain humanity.
