The Only Safe Place Is America

In a messy, dangerous world, America is the last safe place, but for how long?
Ben, I'll toss you a lifeline. Read this book, and then realize that the West is more potent than we let on. Then go review a bit of Civil War history. We also tend to be tenacious. You'll feel better in the morning!
Carnage and Culture: Landmark Battles in the Rise to Western Power Paperback – August 27, 2002 by Victor D. Hanson
We Americans are pretty willing to sleep in our protected castle, until it becomes clear we can sleep no more. Then we awaken, produce war material like a maniac, and then go and kill everyone who made the fuss. After we feel a bit down, so we produce like mad, have children like mad, the economy goes mad, and we become wealthy. We freely spread money around and the world begins to recover. Things get back to normal. Until the idiots just can't keep from Eff'ing the whole thing up again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Remember Ben, if you really feel insecure, there are plenty of places with real live concealed carry laws, and many of us who would welcome someone like you as a neighbor. Come up sometime, go shooting, you might just like it. Summers here are the best anywhere in the world, winters are a gray bitch, but summer . . .
