While we definitely do punch above our weight up here in the Democratic People’s Republic, we can not always take credit for everything that goes wrong with our mortal enemy. The NY Times features an opinion piece that recites the ability of Americans to slaughter themselves of their own accord.
“In a month of violence gruesome even by our own standards, 57 people have lost their lives in eight mass shootings. The killing grounds include a nursing home, a center for new immigrants, a child’s bedroom. Before that it was a church, a college, a daycare center.”
The allegory they use is that of a frog slow-boiling in a pot, Americans watching as their society implodes. We could not agree more.
