Is America going too gently into that bad, dark night?

“Do not go gently into the dark night.” That was the advice of Dylan Thomas in his poem, but that is exactly what America is doing today.

While we should “rage rage against the dying of the light,” we are sitting quietly by while the institutions we knew and loved slip into oblivion.

I just read a news article about a civil service employee who was accused of racism and suspended from his job for stating that he was proud to be white. Political correctness is destroying everything that was once the strength of American society.

In less than one year after the last election, things are much worse in the U.S. government’s oppression of these non-minority citizens than ever I thought possible. Even worse abuses are still to come.

Sadly, the darkness of political correctness and censorship have descended on America, and few seem to be aware of what is happening. When the misdirected citizens who have embraced this attitude wake up to reality, it will be too late to “rage against the dying of the light.” I fear it is already dead.
