Eve Of Destruction

Can anyone tell me what happened to social conscience? Maybe it’s out there, perhaps it exists in tweets or percolates in realms outside my middle aged perception. It could be that my idea of social conscience is locked in a dusty vault, a time capsule indicative of my age. Before social media, in a world where protest stirred in the hearts of citizens, and resounded with a collective cry for change.

I can’t help but think protest has lost its way. Listening to Vietnam era anti war songs evokes a sense of despair. Where has our social conscience gone?
