Society and humanity is perpetually consumed by an underlying issue that has been and will always be the cause of its own downfall. This issue is not one thing, but a combination of things that can be unified into what I personally would like to call "The historical causation for mans downfall". First, a civilization is built. From then on, issues are established through many different outlets (including religion). These outlets result in the divide of the people. This divide in the people is often due to propaganda and political leaders. This is due to the fact that leaders usually recognize the inability for many individuals to find answers within themselves, and the necessity within individuals to categorize their lives and belief systems into divisive groups. Society as a whole, eats up this division due to the perpetual desire within a man to stimulate themselves with some negative influence such as drama, war, and power. To do this, each divisive side will formulate a way to blame the other religious, political, racial, or gender based side that opposes them. This all together causes the collapse of the people, and the formulation through manipulation of a new, usually oppressive government. This government will then reign for a set limited time period before the people within the nation become weary, then the government will be overthrown and the ones in power will usually meet a timely and horrid demise.
Even in modern day, this is how the world and the government operates globally. Instead of focusing on what's best for the people all together, people within the nation of America have been made to believe that they are to submit to one extreme or another instead of refusing either and demanding a rule that is free from any political or religious side. People are made to be distracted from those in power by formulating other forms of manipulated and biased propaganda that will divide the masses based on the specific political side the news platform is on. People are made to feel bad for being born with a genetic code that they never chose, and individuals are being labeled all around for their beliefs, their skin color, and their sexuality. By making the masses more concerned with how their neighbor lives their life rather than how the individual lives their own, the government has managed to keep the people divided therefore allowing them to stay in power.
This power, has been craft in its form of operation. Perhaps if individuals were to realize that it is the biased news, the corrupt powers on all sides, and that it is the radicals on all sides that are keeping our country in perpetual war, America can step up and become the great country it was esteemed to be. Until then, our country will be divided by extremties and small issues rather than United. And until then, our American and human history shall be repeated until the end of time.
