An historical insight for the ages.

Much of this reminds me of World War I, the “Great War.” Look up the causes. They are all amorphous. Nationalism. An assassination. Treaties. Diplomatic confusions. The Serbs. Meanwhile none of these reasons can actually account for 20 million dead, 21 million wounded, and wrecked economies and lives all over the world, to say nothing of the Great Depression and rise of Hitler that came as a result of this appalling disaster.

Despite investigations, countless books, public hearings, and public fury that lasted a decade or more after the Great War, there never was anyone who accepted responsibility.

So it might be for the lockdowns and mandates of 2020 and 2021.[1]

So it is with the long, slow slide into our present clown version of what the original American constitutional republic was all about. Penumbras emanate. Cities decay. Crime spreads. Schools don’t. Deficits happen. Debt soars. The currency evaporates. Jobs too. Riots happen. Thugs roam. Surveillance came. So did hostile and indigestible foreigners. Wars happen. Regimes change. Money flows. Votes appear.

    Mr. Tucker has nailed it.  In conversations with people I encounter on a daily basis, the word accountability comes up almost every time.   The lack of it, along with an absence of critical thinking, is prevalent in all segments of current society.

    From the political class to the people on the floor of big box stores, there is a lack of concern for the truth.  It is rare to find someone who will admit to a mistake and not use the victim card.    Yes, “he who is without sin may cast the first stone”.  I know, we all do it from time to time.  I try to teach my grandchildren that making excuses and not facing up to your failings is a poor choice.  I have found that taking responsibility and admitting errors is very cleansing.  It relieves the guilt no matter how small or large.  That is assuming you still have a conscience.  It seems like too many no longer possess  such a God given sense.
