As I grieve on the death of my 42-year-old nephew, and for the drug-related death of my 19-year-old grandson, and deaths of thousands of other young people,  at least I know I have done as much as I could for them (alongside millions of others of my conscience).
 
I have spent a lifetime (full time) by social activism and writing, advocating that society intervene with budgets for the kind of education thath would  protect our young people from folly, and with programs for addicts. With all our wasteful police budgets mainly paid by taxes mainly on the backs of the working "class",  we still have evil, criminal activity and poor ethical values working against them. These are the "terrorists" from whom we cannot escape because our material culture is more important to them than human lives. They are many and more to come as economic times become more difficult, which they will, as demonstrated by purchased-legislation over the past 10 years.  They have been trained with lust and greed and dedication to keeping up with living standards set much too high by media consumerism.
 
I am thankful I was able to provide a good education and guidance for my own two sons so that they were able to survive successfully to their mid-fifties. They didn't (and sometimes shouldn't have), always listened to my advice, and there are uninvited outside influences that make me cringe, but there I was, always nagging in the background of their lives, about values and priorities.
 
 
When will we ever tax the rich for our social well-being instead of wasting money of poor people's taxes on police protection for their property?  The real class war between "the haves" and "the have-nots" must end. The words "liberal" and "conservative" are meaningless in arguing the issues of taxation and national ethical priorities.
