There Is Hope For the Next Generation

Grandma Peggy and I are constantly asking what will happen to our grand children in the future? I, for one, believe that they will adapt no matter what kind of country America becomes. What troubles me is that they will never see the same America that I did. They will never see a country of opportunity, but they may see a country filled with expectations. They will expect free stuff, like a free house, a free car, a free phone, free health care, free college, freedom from work. The list is endless. What they won’t experience is the joy of being free to live a life based on one’s own ability. They won’t know the joy of excelling at a job and advancing, or better yet, the joy of starting a business which becomes successful.

Somehow, they will cope with a socialized America. They will live joyfully as drones and go to the collective-whatever to work for the same wage as everyone else because sameness is what makes them joyous. I saw this same joy in the faces of those in East Germany, and in the communized states of Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. The people of these countries were so filled with joy, the government built fences at the borders. To assure their joyous faces wouldn’t spread to neighboring capitalist countries they erected guard houses every three hundred meters and manned them with people whose job description was “shoot to kill.” The fence, and guard houses stand in a wide grassy field one hundred meters wide on either side of the line. Most of these people are so happy to spread their joy they sneak across the field at night and lay still trying to blend in with the grass when the spotlights pass over. A few make it as far as the fence, others lay bleeding and dead in the grassy field.  Those who reach the fence must climb four-meters of cyclone fence with spiraling razor wire at the top. Again the lights shine and the machine guns sputter a line of bullets through the night sky and find the bodies scrambling up the fence, all happy and gay with only the single-mindedness to spread their joy.

Very few joyful people make it into the scummy capitalist countries to spread the message of  happiness. Most find their greatest freedom as they lay dead and bleeding at the foot of the wire wall.

Then, I see a video of a young woman named Elle May. I watch it, she inspires me, and raises my belief  that my grand children will still have the same opportunity to live in the America I live in.
