I like to examine the social consequences of such events. What is beautiful in this disaster is that it shows that honestly, Americans submit to their government. People of the world do. And for a small, short instance I saw that people don’t have to. The government, contrary to what we, the people, have lead it to believe, have the final say. And this brings me to the scarey part. There will be attempts to regulate, the control, to diminish and to remove. I hope that people realize that all the money they dump into the government even if they raised taxes for such noble if short sighted causes as improving roads or helping pay for some foeign relief effort, the money and resources are not there to assist those who pay those taxes. The people who benefit from these funds place them to furthur and secure their own power and influence. And with this great nation over exended financially, militarily, politically, and solically there is little room to help those in calamity. It is foolish of people to settle down in their daily lives and not consider the future. This “live now, pay later” borrowing mentality for money issues is seen through out this nation’s fabric. The athiest beliefs of the few (or majority) and these inconsequencial behaviors have destroyed any moral foundation this nation has ever had. In the last 50 years we have seen dependancy upon the government to skyrocket. School shootings, sexual indecency, boundries and respect for one another, and the willingness to commit wrong have all increased. Fair, honest and kind people are harder to find. In England, there is a school that allows children to say “f*ck” up to 5 times a day. They believe it will improve behavior!
“The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it.”
