I feel that our republic is in the same situation as Rome about 375 A.D. The fabric of society had no anchor, moral pivot point, many “gods” were “honored.” Whatever was right in your eye was the “right” thing to do. When a fruit is rotten on the inside it only takes a slight squeeze and it is done. We are close. It is interesting that good history is not read anymore, the likes of James Usher and others. We are close.
