Is it too late - in today's world? Who knows? God knows! Mankind can't do it and this all brings us to a religious or a discussion on theism vs atheism vs deism. All verboten for the right reasons - thanks, Joe!
I believe that the threat most unrealized is the one within our own gov't. Why and how do you suppose that the (not 'my') prez has gotten away with his unconstitutional, illegal manner of governing our country. We are broke yet we argue for inclusion of millions of welfare opportunists to our country without a southern border. He could never have gotten away with this except by the Congress turning a blind Dem AND Rep eye to the slaughter of the rule of law. Not long from now - maybe months - the specter of hyperinflation will be loosed upon us and we will no longer be able to afford the necessities of life. The sick among us will die for want of medication and the old from hunger or exposure. The Muslim contingent won't need to lift a finger.
