Regarding Yesterday’s Rant (100 words)

Regarding yesterday’s rant- The nature of progress is always to destroy what is. This is not always a bad thing, just inconvenient to those comfortable with what was.

There is however, so it seems to me, a moral question connected with progress. For America to progress as a civilization, it necessarily (?) had to eradicate the civilization already present among the original inhabitants. How moral was that progression, especially in its execution? Did anyone ask that question as it was happening, or was there just an assumption that might makes right? Isn’t the whole process of our evolution “might makes right?”

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
