Baby Boomer Blip?

When you get off the boat on Liberty Island, you see the statue from the rear first, and proceed to walk toward the front view during the walking tour. Very cool.

Read an article this morning suggesting that war is the normal and peace times are very rare in human history. We post war boomers caught a break between WWII and whats next with our relatively manageable conflicts in Korea and Vietnam.

Now with the twilight of the US as a super power, the world will increasingly turn to widespread violence. Yechhy thought.

Closely related to my dislike of end times negative theology that is always waiting for the world to go bad as good news. This is why my current thinking is hopeful, truly hopeful, not related to false or liberal hopes, but to the nature of God and the character of man who sees that bombs and guns and violence are just poor ways to get what you want. Like the song I grew up with. When will we ever learn, when will we ever learn?

The Vietnam War (yes it was a war) was a huge diversion in my life. Lost several friends there.
