Regarding: "... before the flashpoint that caused so many to retreat from public
bonds into an increasingly aggrandized, self-serving privation. (We see how far
we've traveled from the message in "Ill Wind" by recent events, which privilege
a bankrupt neo-tribalism as a pretext for excluding the victims of circumstances
that were brought on by a lack of public vigilance--and NOT a failure of the
principles so many chose to willfully reject.)
I'm lost. Do explicate.
