Hours before I posted my previous entry entitled ‘Enjoy Your Heaven’, (a dream on the future of abortion,) one of my kids came into the room and told me of this upsetting dream they had just the night before. (Note: They had not seen the previous post on abortion.)
This child and a sibling was sitting there in front of the television, listening to the beginning of a speech that the President of the United States was supposed to give from the White House. The speech had been promoted to the people of the land, as being very important.
The president came out, and began to announce to the audience, the three big changes that He, as President of the United States, had just made. None of these big changes had been voted into existence by the House or the Senate, or by any other voting body. The president had somehow simply declared them as being new laws, through some kind of legal loophole.
The first change, concerned the laws on abortion. Abortion was to be completely legal in every state, even up to the moment of birth. (Was there a time after birth, where it was also now legal? Not sure.) This announcement by itself, did not shock the people in the audience too much. But there was something else, within this new law, that caused the ‘everyday citizen’ to somehow also be involved in these abortions. This caused great shock amongst many of the listeners, especially the Republicans. (Exactly what this was, was not seen in the dream. The sibling wanted to change the channel, which distracted this child from hearing the rest of this first change.)
The second change, is that the President had decided to go forward with some kind of a drone missile strike on the country of Turkey. At this, the whole crowd cheered wildly in support of the strike. (My child had no idea in this dream, what the country of Turkey had done to the US to have deserved such a death strike upon its people, and that would cause such enthusiastic support from the audience.)
The third change, shocked everyone in the audience, both the Liberal Democrats and the Republicans, and everyone else. The President declared that the United States of America, was now formally a socialistic state. Not Democratic, not a Republic, but Socialism now ruled the land. Complete silence overcame those in the audience, as shock reverberated around them.
My child, in the dream, hearing this, first thought, we’re screwed! Then thought about moving out of the United States, but soon realized that there wasn’t too many other places where one could retreat to. Was there even one left? The sibling didn’t realize yet, the enormity of what had just happened, or just how awful this would end up being, for everyone living in America.
This child remembered watching the country slide into a decline for a while now, like petals of an aging flower falling off one by one, slowly. But this…was momentous. Then this child realized, they had just witnessed the final death of America.
(End of dream.)
