A powerful “Must Read” that explains what’s happening below the “surface respectability” of the United States
America’s massive outbreak of opioid addiction and the tens of thousands of people a year it’s killing, appears to be a symptom of a complex cocktail of problems that millions of Americans suffer from. Opioids are being used to dull the pain of what is widely accepted as the path to prosperity and happiness – the manic drive to “earn” more and more money no matter what the human cost to themselves, their families, society at large and to the Earth itself while the already obscenely rich get richer. Meanwhile the concentration of our national economic elite continue to espouse false promises of more self-esteem, more power and more “happiness” for all who follow them. Indeed, these increasingly rabid, complusive titans of national, if not world-wide economic and political power, are teaming up, all supporting a single political and economic international cartel, which further perfects their toxic pursuit of the great almighty ME, versus the community, versus the country, versus the Earth itself.
In a great unveiling of our nation’s collapsing societal plumbing, writer Andrew Sullivan lays out, in easy to understand terms, what IS happening and of the great financial, emotional and spiritual pain it is inflicting upon the world’s people, including our own while the global rich get even richer. Sullivan clearly describes the dark pall that has fallen over this country, from Washington D.C. down to Main Street – the deep and relentless pain and stress, caused by an economic and financial contagion, that opioids temporarily dull. His article in the New York Magazine hopefully will generate enough light that comes just in time for all Americans to see what they see, know what they know, and hopefully have the will to clean up the mess and get back to being authentic Americans enjoying liberty and justice for all. And for others around the planet.
