The Shortform

How did this happen?

In the last 15 years or so, everything has become awful. Government, our country, church, schools, police, just about anything you can name. And some would have us believe it was always this bad.

I'm just suspicious that this is no accident. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but I can't see how everything went to hell in a handbasket overnight.

Who is behind all of the negativity, fear, and hate? What is their end game? I don't have an answer, but I am not buying it. But we need to get this figured out as our culture seems to be self-destructing.
