What Do You Do When Armageddon Is Near? (satire)

'Mankind today is on the brink of a destruction, not because of the danger of complete annihilation, which is hanging over its head - this being just a symptom and not the real disease - but because humanity is devoid of those vital values which are necessary not only for its healthy development but also for its real progress.

'Even the Western world realises that the Western civilization is unable to present any healthy values for the guidance of mankind. It knows that it does not possess anything which will satisfy its own conscience and justify its existence.' -- Sayyid Qutb, Milestones

Recently, the activity at Jupiter Beach during summer break shows us the lack of healthy values for the guidance of mankind. Another example is mainstream media's reporting of crime to the point where one believes society is a fearsome place.

Ever wonder why the terrorists blew up Bali? It's because of drink and its overblown evils.

Yet we in the West are tolerant of such things. Those of us who seldom drink to excess do not confront the drunkards and the drug addicts because of our fear that things will get out of hand. This is why you won't see the "Moral Majority" picketing Jupiter Beach or even Ft Lauderdale anytime soon.

If you think 9-11 was just a terrorist attack against America, then you are sorely mistaken. It was a wake-up call to Americans enthralled by the decadent hedonism that passes for normal.

However, the average American then took to the Internet to show how racist they really are. One ignorant American even killed a Sikh in Arizona. More recently, a criminal shot up a Sikh temple. If this is the face of intelligence in America, then it is small wonder that a Christian preacher wanted to burn the Quran.

Would America change its ways? It appears that the GOP is willing to, though the result of that social experiment is the Tea Party and right-wing Militiamen.

Most of the Democrats endorse ObamaCare, despite the fact that the Republicans resisted it in vain. Although it still does not guarantee medications and medical procedures for free like it is in social health care in Canada and the UK, it has made various treatments for patients affordable.

In my opinion, the reason why this is the way it is with ObamaCare is because before ObamaCare, some patients might have died because their health insurance company wouldn't carry the medication or medical procedure any more. After ObamaCare, people's lives will be saved.

Overall though, Sayyid Qutb is right: America is destroying itself from the inside out. The rich elites of America are annihilating the poor, the immigrants, and especially the women.

America itself is in need of promoting the healthy development of its people and its progress in the world today. The war within the middle class results in more people among the poor collecting welfare, supposedly due to the poor economy but actually due to the fact that employees are expensive to maintain.

What do you do when Armageddon is near? Religion is not the answer here, and neither is politics.

Just carry on what you are doing, youth of America. I hear party music in the distance...
