and wise at the same time, considering how it describes government and
people's rights. For two centuries in America our states and cities
have taken advantage of freedoms and liberties (assuming they are not
the same), so that while economy and culture faired well, all seemed
copacetic and highly liveable. Americans could be of good will and
patriotic then. "Oh, home of the brave, where the deer and the
antelope play; where seldom is heard a discouraging word, and the
skies are not cloudy all day."
But now we are seeing it all fall apart; why, I wonder?
Well, from the survivalist point of view, it's a matter of human
nature exposing how animal and opportunistic we are, IMO. I mean,
look at what's exposed in the news, as an example.
It seems obvious that our legal and law enforcement system is not able
to contain the animal nature of a large percentage of "citizens."
Prisons in the U.S. with over 2 million are over-flowing, judges fail
to account for repeat offenders, criminal organizations control not
only the streets, judges, and police, political parties in government
are like "foxes engineering the hen house," and federal agencies are

American institutions of marriage, family, public education, and

iconoclast expressions of revolt. It seems there has been a gradual
loss of ideals, so that we now are in a phase of survival that accepts
a different view of human nature, one that TV news and ads show of our
animal natures. Even criminal organizations like the Mafia are
pictured as a necessary development of democracy. Our shameful
government seems far apart from the ideals expressed in the
So I'm saying that our predicament is like that of countries when
chaos reigned before totalitarianism took over. Human nature in all
its barbaric manifestations are being expressed, using the freedom our
Irony is that anymore most humans respect animals better than they do
humans. As Shakespeare has the king say in King Lear: "like flies to
wanton boys are we to the gods; they kill us for their sport." And it
does seem that some balance of nature is asserting itself in terms of
the evils we see coming in illegal aliens taking over, pandemics, wars
coming, sub-humans running the country, and citizens running amuck.
Dictionary definition of "amuck" is:
" Someone running amuck is showing no self-control. This is a word
that has to do with chaos and disorder. A riot is an example of people
running amuck. ... This word applies to times when control has been
lost: people are showing no self-control, and the situation is out of
