WARNING: deteriorating society ahead!
WARNING: deteriorating society ahead! A society that is in conflict does not have time to bother with environmental concerns. But we'll soldier on here, addressing them as they come to our attention. Irresponsible US residents (criminals, gangs, race supremacists, militias, do-it-yourself armaments manufacturers & other mentally deranged folks) are currently arming themselves and others with these, making targets of all citizens. Led by Presidential example, and egged on by greedy merchants of death such as the one below, respect for law and order in the US is breaking down. We are shooting each other in record numbers, mostly for no "reason" at all. This is the result of three things. 1. A successful advertising campaign by the armaments industry. 2. An anachronistic 2nd amendment to the US Constitution originally passed to allow slave owners the constitutional ability to form armed posses to hunt escaped slaves. 3. The failure of the agreements made to end the initial military phase of the American Civil War (which continues). Stable, prosperous, democratic, environmentally conscious US society is struggling to recover from this assault. It may survive. Or, as per the original Confederate plan, we may soon be divided into armed, feuding regional pieces with varying degrees of polluted air, water and politics! You have been warned.
