Anyone who has worked as a volunteer with a local animal rescue group knows that most of such groups’ efforts involve feral cats and their kittens. When a mother cat and her litter are brought to a vet, after being examined, they are given a distemper vaccination. Distemper is a very serious disease and no examination of a feral animal is conducted without this essential treatment.
However, a significant percentage of those receiving the shot die fairly quickly. This resulted because the animals already had distemper but didn’t show any observable signs. Thus, the vaccination hastened the onset and virulence of the disease, sometimes causing death in a matter of hours. The inoculation was not the cause of death, distemper was: The treatment merely hastened the inevitable.
The more one studies our present cultural and political quagmire, the more we see a painful example about the consequences of matters that should not — under ordinary circumstances — have produced the current catastrophe. Actually, the present situation is the result of an underlying condition that had existed for a considerable period of time, but was not evident except to the highly trained or experienced. For instance, the election of Barack Hussein Obama — illegitimate and perilous as it was — should not have led to our present crisis, the exposure of a traitorous Deep State and its ongoing coup d’état against the duly-elected President of the United States!
In the three years since Donald Trump’s election, every branch of government has been engaged in an open rebellion against the man We the People elected to office! Most of the supposedly “free press” has joined the Deep State in its efforts to nullify the election of 2016.
For older Americans, such intrigue is a great shock. Many find it difficult to believe that responsible individuals have not stepped forward to restore the rule of law, but so far this has not happened, nor, we are assured, is it going to happen! In fact, our “political class” with the aid of the bureaucracy and the media is even now scheming to prevent the election of any candidate not of its choosing, whether it be Donald Trump or any other outsider.
Obviously, America’s body politic, like those feral cats, was already infected with the condition that has spawned this open, obvious and unrepentant assault against all the principles that our nation claims to represent, such as “liberty and justice for all.”
The malady precipitating our present state reached a crisis point in the mid-20th century. One hundred years earlier, the so-called “Civil War” had redefined the United States into a very different country: And, while the first part of the 20th century appeared innocuous, two World Wars and the Great Depression completed Lincoln’s efforts to destroy the Republic of the Founders.
Many see the 1950s as the last of the “good old days,” but that is not so. Every vestige of the culture began to change in that decade, from music and entertainment to the rejection of what were acceptable social norms. But, if the ‘50s were dubious, the ‘60s were radical. Whether it was dress or entertainment or racial customs or religion or education, all acceptable norms were being questioned and discarded in favor of what was “new” or “fashionable.” Everything old became passé`: Not just music or books or fashions, but morals, ethics, traditions and truths.
Every generation after the 1950s witnessed our continuing decline, but as it was done incrementally there was no great hue-and-cry to end it.
