Seventy five years ago people in America walked the streets at night in major cities with few concerns...and left doors open all night. Shoplifting was a minor problem and violence against Law Enforcement was nearly unheard of. It was a friendlier time when you were more likely to be helped by your fellow American than hurt by them. Today...we live in a totally different place. Danger is lurking everywhere. Theft and crime run rampant. Police are shot and killed for fun. The elderly are victimized as quickly as anyone else..... Brazen Thief Steals Purse From Woman, 82, on Scooter at California Supermarket Young people text and drive killing thousands each year......People cheat the system rampantly.... The ONE caveat, and an important one, is that Civil Rights are more equally spread among all Americans. But at what cost? Did we trade a safe society for one that has everyone closer to equal? Surely VERY few people actually would still support slavery and the majority are pleased with equality for all. But again, at what price? So, what exactly has changed?
