And disturbing because... ? I'll let the rest of you chime in.
I was actually talking to a friend of mine just last week about how many similarities there are between the fall of the Roman Empire and now in the U.S. To many for me to want to fight with this damn phone to write them.
I can see the similarities between the fall of Rome and what is going on in our country now, but I remain optimistic for the future.
We are seeing in Iraq and Afghanistan the results of democracy with people not committed to it. In this country we are seeing democracy in a land where everybody wants it for me but not thee.
I see it as wanting freedom and choice, not democracy per se.
