That’s because of the type of government that Americans have lived under for the past several decades. That’s what has produced the model dysfunctional society in which we live. As long as Americans choose to maintain that type of governmental system — a welfare-warfare state — the new president, whoever he or she might be, will preside over a country characterized by drug addiction, alcoholism, mass murders, and suicides.
Just think: the state took control of almost every American adult living today when he was six years of age and then retained control over him for the next 12 years. That’s what public schooling is all about. Every day, for five or six hours a day for twelve long years, government officials (that’s what public schoolteachers are) had control over all those children who are now adults. Through licensing and supervision, even most of those who attended private schools or were homeschooled came under the indirect tutelage of the government educational system.
