America has become an apathetic nation. An apathetic nation is a cynical one, a nation whose people simply don’t care anymore. American democracy is being threatened by an apathetic populace that has weakened our government by acquiring entitlements and benefits that can lead to economic collapse. Is our democracy entering into this historical pattern?
According to Professor Alexander Tytleri: “A democracy is always temporary in nature, it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
There are numerous examples in history where democracies have failed due to their penchant for creating a welfare nation of entitlements that lead to economic collapse.
America has become a nation marked by indifference.
As a nation founded by Judeo-Christian scriptures the U.S. was blessed in so many ways, making us the envy of the world. The Christian consensus that shaped the first two centuries of America’s national life is now essentially absent. America is now infected with moral decay. If as a nation we ignore God, we cannot expect God’s blessing.
There is no doubt that today America is out of tune. Our country has lost its pitch by removing God from its life, thus producing the dissonant chords of cynicism and apathy. We have programmed God out of our schools, our government, our homes and even some churches.
Once the downward progression begins it is almost impossible to pull out of it. The God of the Bible will not forever tolerate idolatry and benign neglect.
In order to preserve America we must return to seeking the truth, and there is only one way to achieve this, by becoming the God-fearing nation we once were.
