Is the world fragmenting into smithereens ?
There was a time when I believed in democracy, social justice, learning, truth, honor, decency, and so many other intangibles that defined humanity! I still believe in them, but I see the waning of these ideals around me: internationally, nationally and locally.
Now, I see the shattered humanity. Dignity is in shreds. World leaders wear despotic miens and the populace meander amid false propaganda and self-serving politicians. The vast majority has to leave their fates in the hands of a few. The oligarchical and plutocratic miasma clouds democracy.
