As the topic states I can’t recall anytime in my 40 years that this country has been more divided. I am sure everyone can pick out there favorite boogeyman or woman on the cause but the truth is this has been building up for quiet awhile now and while the current administration might not be helping this predates it.
I remember 9/11, I was in college at the time and how the nation came together as Americans. Now I watch how the country reacts over this virus and the tribalism that kicks in. Diversity has become the new division, we are divided on politics, race, culture, and religion. This year since the way the country descended in chaos from the virus pointing the finger at each other instead of the CCP, the violence, riots, city burnings. I was even reading on the Atlantic some article that was saying that republicans should vote for Biden “Or Else” there will be more violence and rioting. When did elections become a hostage situation?
There is no since of community and with the virus literally changing everything and white collar workers like me can work from home, what incentive are there for me or anyone else that has the means to live in a city were nothing is open and violence and protests rule the day. I am in the process of selling my house, already got and offer and going to move even further from the city in which I live 20 miles out already in the burbs. This suburbs has been taken over anyways from I.T. workers from India which has caused a new flight from the area. I never seen an area change so fast it literally took just three years to go from America to New Delhi, no one talks to each other on the streets in this community anymore and this has become the new normal something that supposed to be celebrated?
Where are we headed as a country? Family values is dead, religion is dying, and all I see celebrated from one side is diversity, that’s it nothing else. As if one can’t read history and see that this pretty much always ends in failure and that America was the exception, but not now we are marching right down the path of former Yugoslavia no end in sight. I would like to think there is a way to keep things together but I really don’t see it, I hope I am wrong but all I see is how Identity has taken over and the idea of assimilation has pretty much died. I see a country divided that should go ahead and divide and admit America has failed instead of continuing this march to destruction. It would be better to divide peacefully like Czechoslovakia did instead of the alternative.
