Letters to the Editor

Society doomed to be author of its own demise

To the editor:

Perhaps it’s inevitable that society eventually dismantles the structure and enablers of the wealth that created it.

Spending inevitably increases, entitlements grow, and the freedom and sense of individual responsibility that was the backbone of it all weakens and bends over, cowers and eventually collapses.

It’s the natural evolution of people, governments, and societies, perhaps.Older societies are realizing it now (Europe), and we’re not too far behind.

It’s an Obamination.

Chuck Liebrock,
