    Frank Liberato writes at the American Thinker about negative long-term impacts from today's political and cultural fights.

  • Many of us older than half a century no longer recognize the country we grew up in. We have a hard time reconciling that past America with what we see happening today. America, to our view, was predominantly a place of light, freedom, and joy. Now, as we witness a massing storm of iniquity, we either don't understand what we're seeing or choke back the language to describe it because the words all sound too harsh or politically incorrect. We look for other demons to blame such as socialism and Marxism, and while they are definitely part of the problem, what now haunts us is even darker than those malignancies.
  • This baleful presence has been gathering over the American landscape for some time and the pandemic provided just the right catalyst for it to become a clear and present danger. It would now take an act of will to ignore its existence, but we still, too often, turn our faces away.
  • The individuals who make up the component parts of this devilry may believe that they act out of good intentions, but the sum of those parts empowers an evil system of racism, corruption, and violence. It is an evil that is largely driven by a lust for absolute political power and complete control over the individual. The modern world has seen this storm before, and we ignore it to our great peril. ...
  • ... We deny science in the name of science. We obfuscate truth for the purpose of compliance, conformity, and profit. We have forsaken the Constitution to silence and disarm our population. We deny God and accommodate evil.
  • This darkness will continue to spread until people inside the government are willing to identify and confront it.
