It is always easier to see the current situation as “the worst ever.”
Memories of Nixon; Vietnam, young men slogging through rice paddies and the relentless protests; the Cold War; laundromats with “Whites Only” signs; the Bush-Cheney Iraq War;  the horror of the Balkans; all these fade with time. For us old fogies, near-memories of WWII, the Korean War and endless wars since have been paved over by the endless stream of horror.
But the current world situation: North Korea, Russia (again), China’s agenda, trade, the demise of the middle class, the exporting of both high and low tech jobs and capital, all rubbed to blood by the antics of the current administration have pushed us to a new low.
