This is what society looks like when the glue fails, a time of cascading collapse, a golden age of corruption when the human intellect serves money or it serves nothing at all

In the 1930s and 1940s, there was a sense that we are in this together, a defacto social democracy.
A sense of social solidarity has nearly disappeared as people identity upwards and the right-wing ideology of victimization spreads. We are like buffaloes nestling with the rifles.
