Honestly, I’m fed up with the word “crisis.” That word has become the propaganda tool of political progressives.
- Student loans are a crisis
- Drug prices are a crisis
- Health care is a crisis
- Minimum wage is a crisis
- Inequality is a crisis
- Retirement is a crisis
Here is what a crisis is; A crisis (plural: “crises”; adjectival form: “critical”) is any event or period that will lead, or may lead, to an unstable and dangerous situation affecting an individual, group, or all of society. …
Not only do the above not constitute a crisis, to the extent they are issues to be dealt with, they have largely been caused by the laws, public policy and rhetoric created by the very people widely using the word “crisis.”
While providing adequate assistance to those among us truly in need, we should be questioning to what extent does individual life choices, personal decision making and general irresponsibility impact those issues for the individual.
Here are a few things that are real crises which we largely ignore:
- China is rapidly expanding its influence around the world even threatening the US dollar in the world and has a mission to be the dominant country in the world while the US is focused on its internal “crisis” and obsession with fairness.
- The American spirit has been severely diminished. In its place we want more of what we deserve and are entitled to. We see ourselves as victims of everything from business, executives, greedy companies and the wealthy; anyone who we see as preventing our personal progress…everyone except ourselves.
- We are encouraged to look to government for solutions to personal problems, many times of our own creation. And yet, we can’t see the danger in growing dependency on government or the people running it at any point in time. Every time an administration changes or Congress changes hands of power we are pulled in a different direction. That is a risk from any point of view.
