The thing is that travelling first through the United States and now arriving in Canada, the dangerous terminal illnesses of our civilisation are not mentioned, so far as I can tell, in the press or on the news. This story is titled, The Decline of Western Civilization in a Few Paragraphs and this is how it ends. You will need to read the whole thing to see how he got to here from where he began:
A sign of a sick society is its cheap empathy and caring for the present, and its utter indifference to the past and future. We never much cared about the havoc that Ms. Vasquez did in the past and did not worry about the obvious trajectory of her future — so a judge lectured, a prosecutor dropped a case, and others let her out shortly before she did the same thing that she always had done. . . .
Anyone in law enforcement or the criminal justice bureaucracy could have long ago predicted Ms. Vazquez’s rendezvous with Mr. Winslow. He remains a forgotten victim that the state spent not a dime on, and who is now mute while Ms. Vazquez and her lawyer lecture us about “T-boning,” “addictions” and “stepfathers” — and slamming into and sending a Jeep down an embankment as proof of not being murderous.
