A brilliant man, Emerson understood history and what causes nations to fail. Very apt for today's world, not just in America but in numerous other countries that are tearing themselves apart from the inside.

Yeah, it is more helpful to seek the cause of trouble inside than outside - whether it's a person, family or nation...

So tragically true!

Protesters are creating chaos in our country.

As the saying goes, that chaos may come back to bite them in the butt.

Peaceful Protesting demonstrates how democracy is supposed to work, especially when trying to prevent a suicide caused by inequality, indecency, bigotry, and walking all over the Constitution etc.

Peaceful marching is better than taking out the guns, no? In some countries violence causes mayhem. In the US and Canada so far violence is not widespread. Let's keep it that way.

It will not be by peaceful protest or open political discourse that our nation falls, but by censorship and the educational exsanguination of our country.

Be kind but be fierce. You are needed now more than ever before. Take up the mantel of change. For this is your time.
