  1. Many thanks for this quintessentially sane commentary. One of the major obstacles to solving this problem is that there is too much money to be made in the so-called “defense industry”. There are powerful vested interests focused on sustaining the arms race with our perceived external “enemies”. The “military-industrial complex” that President Eisenhower worried about is more alive and well than ever. Perhaps we need to find a way of making the teaching of civics profitable. Within the reigning American ethos, that might be the only way to change the current dynamics.

  2. I’m just tired of the media still spinning the facts to suite a political agenda. It’s Devided the country & they continue to spread the hate & fear mongering! Our president is weak & hollow. He’s fake & a proven liar. NOBODY HAS FAITH IN OUR GOVERNMENT! I fear soon we will look to Veteran leaders (Ret) to solve the problem. Cities burned all summer & the president says White supremacists are our greatest threat?!? I’m sorry but I disagree. OUR GREATEST THREAT IS THE MEDIA.
    Sincerely,
    American Citizen

  3. Thanks for a good article with good points .
    Too many Americans no longer embrace this country , it’s flag or its democracy. So called news media’s are actually agenda driven propaganda outlets. Politicians are unashamedly selfish , hateful & power hungry. The military industrial complex has had all the wars they desired from 1950 til today, while sacrificing our sons & daughters and bankrupting America & running up $30 trillion in debt. Americans long ago ceased discussing what best for the American people , and instead what’s best for “their” political party. Americans have replaced worshipping GOD the creator and instead worship their political leaders. So many Americans call the pandemic a hoax and a plandemic, and interpret door to door vaccinations as communism & attempts to kill them so the government can takeover.
    Between the propaganda outlets , military industrial complex and the abandonment of right and wrong for the left and the right, is this country even worth the effort of salvaging?
