A Sobering Evaluation of America

From the impacts of COVID-19 to America as the “world’s police force”, from gun violence to the opioid crisis, from increasing racism and economic disparity to the breakdown of the family structure, this article paints a very bleak — but realistic — picture of what the U.S.A. has become, and why it is on the road to self-destruction.

One excerpt: “COVID-19 didn’t lay America low; it simply revealed what had long been forsaken. As the crisis unfolded, with another American dying every minute of every day, a country that once turned out fighter planes by the hour could not manage to produce the paper masks or cotton swabs essential for tracking the disease. The nation that defeated smallpox and polio, and led the world for generations in medical innovation and discovery, was reduced to a laughing stock as a buffoon of a president advocated the use of household disinfectants as a treatment for a disease that intellectually he could not begin to understand.”

This article is long, but it really is worth considering the thoughts of anthropologist Wade Davis. The link is below.
