America’s Night of Broken Glass in Arizona

On November 7th a little known German diplomat, Ernst vom Rath, was shot by teenager named Herschel Grynszpan and killed. Little did anyone know that shortly after that event an entire nation would go on a witch hunt for citizens who had may or may not have exhibited loyalty to their nation and tolerated an intolerable government which launched a series of recriminations which destroyed the faith of the inhabitants of this nation, shattered the lives of millions, and involved everyone in the political discourse whether they elected to participate or not.
Thus when an empire falls into decline, the first temptation is to look outwards and blame the world for the problems of the country rather than analyze the abandonment of the historic origins and traditions which are embedded in that nation’s history and enabled it to grow and flourish. The United States is not an exception. Almost fifty percent of the nation ignores the political events and discussions which impact their lives with changes in the societal structure until there is a national election. In the periods of time when there local elections, the participation and interest in the politics of the state, county, or municipal elections decline even further. The city and county in which I reside is famous for allowing the “retired rich old bats” to dictate the future as the youths only vote in national elections and the middle class is under so much duress to survive that when a vote occurs on tax increases or local vacancies, that the status quo remains yet the electorate bitches about the cost of the outcome imposed on their futures.
Yet they still fail to act to protect their freedoms.
