    I agree with notapplicable. Post WWll the economic book it seemed to go to hell when people became disrespectful and selfrightous to dismantle the American way NOT talking about equal rights. If freedom of speech is a constitutional right for one group or person it MUST have a right for every group or person no matter what they message. Speech WILL offensive or hate to someone. We need to quit being babies

    The post-WWII economic boom. It was apparently an exception and has been unraveling since the 1970s. I almost didn't notice it in my younger years, but the social contract with large businesses which said if you gave an honest day's work, the organization would assure you of a job, benefits and a pension when you retired. These firms also had a commitment (even if it was weak) that you took care of the local community where you were based. Starting in the 1980s the idea that shareholder value was all that matters started the decline in investment in the American worker as corporate America could off-shore most of its operations to...you guessed it, maximize shareholder value.

    Sanity used to be a good thing, but the socialists/Marxists have turned people into insane, bratty children incapable of rational thought and throwing ugly tantrums when they don't get their way. We have the Karens, the cancel culture, the SJW's, BLM, antifa, etc who never grew up, running around screaming with their fingers in their ears so that reasonable people can't talk sense into these misguided children.
