Popp's funnier than I am, on a topic that's not funny at all:
Here's how your culture went down in flames, in 10 easy steps.
Which was enabled by Socialism Lite from 1932-1980.
What started that was Progressivism, just after the Turn Of The Century, 1900-1920.
Particularly Amendments XVI-XIX, inclusive.
And what enabled them was the serial nonsense espoused by Darwin, Marx, Dewey, et al.
Brought to you by the leading lights of materialist and anti-theistic philosophy circa the French Revolution. IOW we were on a collision course with disaster almost from our founding, and the chickens have come home to roost.
So the Baby Ducks of revisionism trying as hard as they can to blame this on Baby Boomers have another thing coming. Starting with the fact that history didn't begin five minutes before you started paying attention.
You want civilization, you've got to burn an awful lot of nonsense down.
Almost nothing dominant currently is anything you want.
And nobody alive now has much experience with the way things oughta be, because they never were, for your entire life.
Just something for you to ponder in your idle moments.
