Just imagine the kind of society where this report was not necessary. But what is done is done.
Let’s now imagine a society where, having acknowledged its wrongs and flaws, actually took the report seriously, and went directly to work with the best of human resources and capital focused on fairness and justice, something like the Marshall Plan. Wow, what would America be like today?
Lastly, imagine such a dark report delivered to small, timid men, whose vision for humanity doesn’t rise beyond the walls and ceilings of their commodious offices; their loftiest dream is date-stamped on a pension, and a job held in trust for them by mysterious lobbyists.
Well, hey, time to get out of bed. Look around, nothing is there to imagine. The smell is that of wounds neglected and the body politic fast headed to mass graves. America chose that option as its destiny.
Won’t keep you with a lot of insincere reasons. Trump is now standing on the edge of a precipice and appears to have all his options closed. Behind him are a small group of unprincipled fanatics, who are determined to hurry on apocalyptic occurrences. Trump in his naivete did not foresee his predicament. All he wanted was to ride an emperor’s horse.
I think that we ought to follow the pleas of Republicans and get behind Trump. I figure that a bump or a push from us, reasonable forgiving folks, would be more that enough to get him and Bannon’s marionettes over the edge, hopefully to a river of fire below, compliments of karma.
Today, while preparing some notes on another subject, it occurred to me that the state of Kentucky, U.S ranks near the bottom of human well-being scales on every measure: adult literacy, higher education, household income and others. Thirty-two percent of the families live below the federal poverty level thus qualifying for federal assistance. Welfare.
How could this be, given the fact that ninety-five percent of the residents vote Republican? That their Senator Mitch McConnell has been serving them in one official capacity or another, all of his working life. A person Kentucky voters have kept in the Senate for over thirty years consecutively. One who began in 1985 making $75,100 now earning $174,000. His average wealth of $22.8 million.
How did Mitch McConnell’s net worth soar?
So, since the White ghetto sees the Black Ghetto in distant, negative terms, it seems to me that our system, beneficial to neither group is maintained, people will continue to deeper poverty.
I tried to keep this short because the two links explain so much more.
