I think we've made a wrong turn somewhere. I read today that there is evidence the US "outsourced" torture. How can all this stuff be happening? At what point did we shift our public conscience to the point where we deny basic human rights, spy on our own people, become the "bad guys"?
I keep myself myself well-informed on current events. I vote in every election, local and federal. I contribute to just causes. I think I'm like most people in my basic wants: health and prosperity for me and mine, in a civil, just society. So what am I not doing? what are we not doing, that we have come to this?
Are we on an inevitable downward turn? I just can't accept that. I can't accept how things ARE. Now what??
