Armed Guards At Unemployment Offices: What It Means
In the news the other day was the fact that the state of Indiana is placing armed guards at various unemployment centers as the expiration of the 99-week unemployment benefits is set to kick into effect. You can read about it here.
This is a pretty amazing event and is a very insightful image into what America has become. Let’s dissect this further.
First, obviously, Indiana fears that possibly there might be some upset or angry people as a result of having their unemployment benefits cut off even if it’s after almost two years of receiving this aid. This means that Indiana thinks some people might be so angry that they would resort to some unrest or violence.
If someone is willing to resort to civil unrest or violence as a result of their financial situation, it shows that this person believes his financial situation is completely out of his or her own hands. Or, they believe their circumstances in life have nothing to do with their own actions but the actions of the government or someone else.
This is truly a bad place for our country to arrive to. Too many people have no desire to pursue a better life or success on their own, but instead would rather look to someone else to provide it for them even if it means taking it from someone else.
What a mess.
