4th of July: An Ode to Freedom

* In the absence of religious ritual, family structure, and shame for the lack of these two, America the world over has achieved it’s coveted freedom. Freedom from what?

* The results of this victory are bittersweet. The idea of America as the vanguard of liberty has neglected discipline and forethought. Freedom from accountability.

* America in the days of yore resembled an inspiring 20 year old, full of vigor and vision. The America today resembles an art student who has a master’s in neurosis and a Mount Rushmore of debt.

* Freedom without discipline is a wish at best. My country celebrates the dregs and downtrodden more than the founding principles and participants of this once innovative nation.

What we do cheer is out of memory. We seem jaded because we are. Excited by nothing because we earn nothing, and sacrifice nothing.

Regards,
