I Don't Think It's The End Times: But It Sure the Hell Feels That Way

Selected sentences from Ecclesiastes 31-8

"There is a time for everything,

 a time to be born and a time to die.

There is a time to be silent and to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace,

A time to tear down and a time to build."

-------------------------------------------------------------------

It feels like we're living in biblical times with plagues and rumors of war.

A worldwide pandemic has brought humanity to its knees and economies to the brink of destruction.

Russia and Korea are both spoiling for war as a weary world looks on silently.

The antichrist in the form of Trump is seeking to destroy democracy and spawn an era of kings and tyrants.

Truth faces daily attacks in media platforms that cater to the alt-right.

Americans haven't been this polarized since the Civil War, which by the way, has become a current topic for insurrectionists.

Fear and loathing stalk Congress and paralyze any meaningful legislation on a partisan basis.

Family members are turning against each other because of idiot ideologies spewing from right-wing lunatics bent on ripping society apart.

Our Constitution is on the line. The thus far successful experiment in democracy faces its greatest challenge to date.

The enemy within. The Trump cult is sabotaging freedoms with impunity. Despite being a minority in America, the Trumpies are still wielding a disproportionate amount of power.

In spite of everything mentioned here, and other unmentioned challenges in our lives, I don't think we're in The End Times. But it sure the hell feels like it!
