IS THE YEAR 2015 OR 1860?
The year 2015 looks as if the American history book has been opened and the pages prior to the Civil War torn out and pasted into the pages of contemporary history. Political polarization dominates government. Preachers are preaching that it is Biblically correct to deny basic civil rights to minorities. Political leaders are advocating that citizens have the right to harm minorities, and that minorities must be kept in their proper places. Religious leaders are falsely accusing minorities of declaring war against the established church, and many of those same leaders are publicly announcing that all minorities should be killed. Citizens are being gunned down indiscriminately by the armed police. Major news media are justifying the use of deadly force by the authorities, and Americans, by the millions, have become a brainwashed group of confused citizens.
