However, in just a few decades America would descend to where mass shooting events are becoming common enough to replace duck and cover with active shooter training for police and lockdown drills in our schools. With gun control laws continuing to be added to the books showing little effect. If the violence has continued to increase, then it can’t be the guns but the willingness of a person to use them.
The establishment hacks who Carlin despised said he was just a bitter old man at the end of his life, but he had zeroed in on the real problems in this country and who was most responsible, and they didn’t like it. I’m convinced anyone who wants to understand what has happened and is happening in this world just needs to read the words of Huxley, Orwell, and Carlin. They capture the zeitgeist of our times

A nation that might have never been. A nation that is unlike any other in the world.
Is there anything at all about the Academy Awards that elevates the disadvantaged and marginalized in our poorest communities? No. Never has been, though. The Smith assault itself was a loud air horn signaling open season on the crudest of reactions: random violence, and its potential for uncontrolled elevation.
After moderate success with novels like The Resurrection and The Wreckage of Agathon, Gardner found fame with the immensely popular Grendel, a telling of the Beowulf saga from the monster’s point of view, and The Sunlight Dialogues, in which a hippie-like character conveying Mesopotamian myths disrupts the lives of various townspeople much as was happening in the urban tumult of the late 1960s.
