When society crumbles

One of the saddest aspects about teaching history is that so many today are clueless as to what even a single generation, let alone generations, earlier began, ended, and endured. What we take for granted today is shameful. Many claimed and argued “rights” are in fact “privileges” and never existed in reality in the past. The words may have been written or uttered, but the actual practice was not what we think occured. What we think is not how we would have lived. Of course the current fashion is me, me, me, but if it is always me first can there ever be an us?
