DAYS OF CHAOS - NIGHTS OF MADNESS

[col. writ. 1/21/18] © ’18 Mumia Abu-Jamal

 

Ask yourself one question: What have you seen in the last year in America?

 

Unless you’ve been asleep, you’ve seen pure, unadulterated chaos in government.

Government - not of action - but of reaction.

 

Government by emotion, roiling from one extreme to the next.

 

Government - loud - and wrong.

 

The nation’s chief executive is, according to his own cabinet members (!), either an idiot or a moron. (take your pick)

 

Loud, bellicose, uninformed, opinionated, crass, rude - and, yes, nasty.

 

If you’re in your 50s, I’d bet you’ve never seen anything like it.

 

A bull is loose in a china shop, wrecking everything within reach.

 The world looks on, with alarm; and a sense - a growing sense, that the American Empire is moving into its last days.

 

A paranoid president knows nothing, except how to transform allies into enemies.

 

The stock market is racing, yes - but can you not smell a bubble about to burst?

 

Washington is in the grip of amateurs, and knowledge, wisdom and reason are on vacation.

We witness government by insult, by name-calling, and by lies great and small.

 

And the world spins on the precipice of madness.

 

The US Empire - Behold!

 

Empire of Chaos.
