EDITORIAL:         The End OF THE American Experiment?

                                All human societies are mad; they must reconcile too many conflicts among our varied species to permit composite sanity. They are also plastic, evolving with the changing needs of the passing generations; that renders them unstable as well. An example is the brevity of democratic governments in human history …                 The arriving replacement for America’s productive Judeo-Christian version seems madder than most; imposing biological males onto female sports upon the premise that such sportsmen feel like girls. Elevating feelings over physical facts is a reasonable definition for insanity, is it not? On a larger scale, what of diluting the money supply via fiat dollars, transferring the productive people’s future wealth to non-productive government for current politicized spending? More, what of inflating that process to the point of threatening the utility of the money? It does seem a mad, mad, mad world that we have made …  we are reminded that: “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”
