Dr. Roberts explains the painful collapse.
In my lifetime I have witnessed and experienced the destruction of a great nation based in principles hard to live up to, and its replacement with a criminal organization devoid of all principle except power in which law is weaponized and serves to beat down challenges to illegitimate power.
No American born in the 21st century, or even in the 1990s, has ever experienced a free country. The young have no idea of what has been stolen from them. The American youth are being trained to be happy in a virtual world where they will enjoy artificial and meaningless freedoms that do not threaten the power that rules over them.
Coming in two generations behind Roberts – (the one in between us doesn’t really count) – I can attest to what he writes. We have a lot to recover.
