It seems rather strange but I guess for some it’s true. We live in the United States of Bubbles. . .or is it, the United Bubbles of America? And some really like that.
This Trumpist in Iowa speaks for many, it seems:
“We have life very easy, it is laid back, it is like-minded people. And it’s just, I like the bubble.”
“Christianity Will Have Power”
U.S.B.? Maybe, but not very “united,” I’d say.
We could probably use a USB–Universal Serial Bus–to connect people too:
“USB: standard that establishes specifications for cables and connectors and protocols for connection, communication and power supply between computers” [or humans].
I think that is the way that the US was set up… as a republic where in local areas, the locals can influence the governance, therefore local areas operate the way that thelocals like for it to.. The Feds do not have to be involved in every aspect of an American’s life. Should the Fed set up a structure that provides freedom and equality? yes, then let the locals influence their own areas. People are attracted to certain areas for certain reasons… nothing wrong with that…
Thanks for the comment. What you say has limits, which is part of my point. No one is saying local people can’t make their own decisions and govern themselves (which they do). . .but within reasonable limits. If “united” is to mean anything there has to be some “structure” as you say, to insure there is freedom, equality, justice–those critical elements the country was founded on (but has a long way to go living up to, in my opinion).
Yes, I agree, local people “influence” their own areas and choose to live among “their own.” Fine, except. . .what if that town decides they don’t want people who look or believe differently to live there, or, the town chooses to follow the Bible (as they interpret it) and not the laws of the state or federal government? Some will say that’s their right, until. . .other towns decide they want to live by the Qur’an, or other religious rules (for instance, practice polygamy). Then what? No one is saying the folks in the article can’t live in their chosen bubble. But what the rest of us have to remind them, is there are many bubbles, and America, and American ideals, are greater than the bubbles. Each bubble has to accept they are part of a Union. Don’t you think that’s true?
