America’s Growing Pessimism

When Americans look to the future, two mega-trends evoke the most optimism about the nation’s long-term trajectory, the latest Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll has found.

One of these trends, the onset of the digital revolution, evokes optimism in every major segment of society. But the second one, the nation’s growing racial and ethnic diversity, divides Americans along lines of race, generation, and, above all, partisanship, thereby illuminating some of the fault lines in modern American life.

    (apparently finite) patience, or that we ought to simply read the
    stories bronze-age nomads wrote, or whatever else– would come together to tear it down, bound by the basic laws that govern the motion of everything from events to baseballs to force their own prophecies to come true.

    And so, war.

    I’m pessimistic because the liberal school system has brainwashed students, like whoever wrote that bit above, into believing that anyone who doesn’t conform to their opinion is dangerous. The quote above is no different than what the Quran espouses: We cannot live together under any circumstances, there must be war, and the fault is yours.

    And so, war.
