Same Poem, Different Era, History Repeated?

Chilling, how blindly we are stampeding toward the precipice, even with all the screaming, all the protesting. The gnashing of teeth, the rending of garments. The hurling of tweets, of memes, of facts and tabulations.

With all the citing of history, and the preponderance of evidence, still, we can’t even manage to tap the brakes, much less stop the stampede.

Can America really have atrophied intellectually to such a degree, that we will go, lemming like, damn the torpedoes, right into the the abyss? The abyss of irrelevance? Of fallen empire? The cautionary tale told to children in history classes of the future?
