There are people out there trying, on purpose, to freak us out. And doing a pretty good job of it, too.
Why? It gets votes. It gets TV ratings, social media views, or even fame. It raises funds. And it creates favorable conditions for further mischief. I think I’ve put my finger on it there.
It’s very hard to maintain a peaceful, orderly society when the slightest opposition to our plans for the moment drives us violently crazy.
Kill the culture, and it’ll kill you back.
