Nov. 11, 1997 journal entry

“America” is over. Long live America. America is splintering. It has been slowly cracking at the seams for 50 years and it will be rent asunder on many and diverse fault lines in the next quarter century.

I love America. America is the greatest. I hate America. America embodies all that is wrong and wretched in the human spirit. But the shards of the broken America are also like the seeds of a ripened grain, which will fall back into the rich soil and sprout anew.
