They made it 1000 years. We're not even to a quarter of that yet and the wedge issues are becoming so wide that bridging them may become impossible. And sadly those wedge issues are comprised of mostly morality issues.
With so many convincing themselves that something as simple as BIOLOGY is up for debate how do you negotiate with such ignorance?
Hate crimes, a ridiculous term imo, are on the rise DRAMATICALLY but not in the manner that the elites and media portray.
Boys are coddled as girls & vice versa instead of their mental illness being treated.
Crimes are going unpunished for one segment of society in the name of social justice. Adults are having their lives wrecked for shit they said as a child.
Young adults are being taught that capitalism & being white is a bad thing.
The list goes on and on.
How do we ever recover from this lunacy, or can we?

No, we have to carve out the hard core democrook regions on the NE and far left coast. They're a cancer.

I'm curious as to when, and from which party, we elect a modern day Caligula.

The Biden administration is already locking up political enemies without bail and putting them on trial. Also trying to get friends and family to report each other for suspicious activity. Seriously, who defines suspicious? To the left praying daily while owning guns is suspicious. To the right putting up with people like Omar is suspicious. It's an asinine circle jerk of fools. Biden is trying to create the "Minority Report" movie in real life.

Not eve close...... We have effectively divorced ourselves from the practical survival needs and have now embraced a totally unfounded philosophy based on wishful thinking. It cannot survive you are totally correct. If our shoplifter friend did his act to an equivalent Walgreens in first century Rome....he would have his hand removed. That simple.

We can NOT recover from the lunacy. It's too late. As with the Roman Empire - we have let the madness of the left send us on a course that we will never recover from.

We are following in the footsteps of Rome and will suffer the same fate as they did.

It didn't end there. The Capitol just moved East, Greek speaking Byzantine/Constantinople and it was Christian until it fell in 1453.

There is little chance that any nation will last 1,000 years like the Roman Empire did.

The biggest part of that is the speed at which things change in our modern world, and how events effect the entire globe instead of small regions.

It is a pleasure reading posts like this which refer to literature, history, culture....
But you are speaking in a language unknown to Biden voters, government school grads, non-readers.


Just as we no longer have shared values, …they oppose free speech, the second amendment, and the free practice of one’s religion.....

....there is no shared culture, either.
