Now, just imagine the disastrous situation in New Orleans and the surrounding area as one small isolated spot in this country as it would be after the
U.S. got hit with a bunch of nukes in an exchange with China or Russia or anybody else. The thought of what it could be like is enough to make
everyone step back from nuclear war.
I like to think my country is a decent, civilized place, but the stories and pictures coming out of the hurricane disaster area make you realize just
how thin the veneer of civilization really is. I know the vast majority of people are keeping it together in the face of a terrible situation, but
the fact is, the minority who are turning lawless and violent are a force strong enough to take over that majority in the absense of meaningful
counter force. Does anyone think a pack of wolves stops to contemplate that the flock of sheep they are attacking outnumbers them a hundred to
Remember that the next time you go to vote. It takes someone willing to put up a fight, to organize and lead resistance. We, the people are to blame
for letting our children grow up to be people who can do the things going on in New Orleans now. We are failing our jobs as parents and counsellors
to our young. Somehow, someway, we need to change the way we do things now to prevent these kinds of events from happening again in the future.
