Well, here we are again, America. Have a look at the latest indicator we live in the “greatest nation on Earth”. Another two teens commit suicide. Two fifteen-year-old girls, very similar to the incident that garnered national headlines before it that I talked about here in Lew Rockwell. See here.
I want to be crystal clear: I am not blaming the parents here in these incidents. These parents need our prayers. But guess what? So does our society. But the professional experts and talk show circuit riders will surely tell us what we want to hear so we can watch more violence and amoral hogwash afterward. Again, we’re going to ask the wrong questions, come to the wrong conclusions, and never once step into a room where there is a mirror and no politicians.
How long will America outsource its children to the government? I mean, people keep wanting the government to fix this or that thing and for decades now, we’ve seen no progress. Maybe that’s because this government sees “solutions” as being a sledgehammer to pound in a carpet tack. Not that the government would want to pound in a raised carpet tack. How else will they sweep crap under the rug, after all? No problem is ever as simple as the government makes them out to be, where we can Obamacare, regime change, and Hillary dillary dock our way out of fundamental, profound, and horrifying social problems that are so obvious you have to medicate yourself to avoid seeing them. Which is what a lot of people do and the government thinks it’s “easy” access to prescription medications that causes that. No, you idiots! It’s because this is not the “greatest” nation on Earth, like you keep selling us on, you bunch of geopolitical slumlords! If this country was an apartment complex, it’d be worse than any low-rent cracker box full of roaches and rodents and ten deadbolts on the door just to make it through the night.
