the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia...
Independent of President Trump's statements about these events, I am concerned that too many in our nation have descended into the Cult of Victimology.
Self-pity, whatever the topic or cause — be it a legitimate or an illegitimate cause — is unhealthy for the body of our republic.
Furthermore, in my view, such victimology-identities predate the arrival of Donald Trump upon the political landscape.
We are watching the devolution of America.
