It is the only way the establishment knows to drive the country out of its doldrums.
Never before had a vast segment of the population refused to accept the results of a Presidential election. When the nation is fundamentally depressed about its prospects, you get darker visions of the future like those of the s: Soylent Green, Future Shock, and World War III.
Most of all, it is only by remembering our history that we can avoid repeating it. By the late s American experienced a series of extreme crises.

The Stepford Wives was written in as a kind of satirical horror story about the fictional town of Stepford, Connecticut, where the talented photographer Joanna Eberhart moves with her husband. When the national mood is one of hope you see more flying cars and jetpacks like those of the s and 60s. However, the many, many weaklings stumble in rows after rows of slimy gutters. Cordial discourse on controversial issues is no longer possible, because we have forgotten how to have civil conversations with those who disagree with us. The New Year may be the critical turning point that changes the course of American history and ultimately destroys the founding principles that made our nation great. The level of intransigence on the part of the Democrats and their personal animosity against the President gives little room for optimism that any real bargain is possible.
