As one who studies and loves history, you guys are making me cringe with these posts
Progressing? During the 60s? lol HARDLY.
After WW2 we were progressing. During the 60s we were regressing and regressing FAST. Nearly spiraling out of control. That "unity" didn't happen
until a few people were assassinated (and even then progress was slow - in fact some of the issues that plagued us then still plague us now).
Things have the potential to get worse this time.
What specifically are you basing this on?
Edit: And was there ever a time when that potential actually left us?
We no longer have a super-power enemy to keep the majority united.
Radical Islam has the same potential as communism (depending on how the PTB play it)
Our criminals and our failed humans are not just a bunch of home-grown losers smoking home grown depressants this time- instead we've got
foreign criminal organizations dealing in meth and crack- these are not the kind of people who hold a concert to show that they are angry, and if they
show up in Sacramento with guns, the police will not have to ask whether or not the guns are loaded
Not sure I understand what you're saying?
Foreign gangs (including the mafias) were extremely active back then.
Maybe I'm missing something
Our home grown losers then were sending BOMBS to people.
Right now people are too afraid to do anything to bring change anymore in this nation.
What are you basing this on?
The biggest protests in US history have happened within the last few years.
Have you seen youtube? MORE people are speaking out and reaching an even wider audience.
During the three decades after we made real change in this country, voting rights, greater rights for all.
You are 100% correct. Why was that? Because we had effective leadership and a willingness to change.
There is NOTHING George Bush has done that can't be undone by the next president (if that president is a good and effective leader). And of course
people want change - as these presidential primaries have shown.
