Eve of destruction lyrics and today

Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin'
I'm sittin' here just contemplatin'
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation
Handful of Senators don't pass legislation

And marches alone can't bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin'

This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

Was listening to music while I was working and these lyrics from Barry McGuire's Eve of destruction really struck me as so fitting for today.

Manchin and Sinema (handful of senators) don't pass legislation
Post Floyd marches by so many people -- and we have even more rising white supremacists storming the Capitol

I truly fear that unless those handful of Senators get on board ... we are truly on the eve of destruction -- first of our democracy and then the world because hate will spurn more wars to fuel the military-industrial complex as it has since Reagan because it is a great way to profiteer.
