shift in consciousness is the only thing; it seems.
so, I think its safe to accept that unless everyone changes, no one changes and will continue to do as they please and focus on serving their own
interests first and foremost without regard to anyone else. furthermore, i assume that everyone will be happy with the world in this condition and
they have no one to point a finger at but themselves.
but let it be known that 250 murders at mid July is nowhere near the pace of gang driven murder in 1974, which ended at 970. being that the city
proper is about the same size today as then, violent crime has collapsed in chicago during my lifetime. but people are free to sensationalize.
the real reason for a thread like this being authored is so that under no circumstances should Americans feel that their lives are improving; even
though it is. but the tone of the OP is consistent with many things i've read here and in mainstream media.
