It’s really not a mystery why things seem different in America than 30 years ago...it is called ‘demoralization’. Socialists have been covertly promoting demoralization through movies, music, arts and politics across the globe for decades now to bring about “change”.
As a thought along those lines, consider the overwhelming majority of movies which take place in the 'future' have presented us with a post-apocalyptic landscape of ruin and moral degredation. When is the last time you saw such a film, showing a future which was optimistic and the result of progress and not decay?
Perhaps those of us who are of a 'survivalist' bent should look toward fighting for a better future rather than just surviving a decaying one.
