Eve Of Destruction


There Is Always A War Raging Somewhere On The Planet. There are always Starving People. Angry People. Greedy People. People who want what others have. And People who Hate others because of their Skin Color, Religion, Culture, Gender, Nationality – Etc.

In August 1965 – Barry McGuire Recorded the Famous Protest (Anti-War) Song . . . Eve Of Destruction, which became a National Anthem for the Protestors of the Vietnam War.

Fast Forward To Today54-Years Later . . . And Effectively, Nothing Has Changed. And if This Protest Song (Eve Of Destruction) was Performed 3,000-Years Ago, it would have been as Appropriate then – As It Was In 1965 . . . As It Is Today, and as it will be in a Thousand Years From Now – If Humanity Doesn’t Wipe-Itself Out First.


No Matter How Charismatic A Leader May Be – He Cannot Lead A Nation In A Direction The People Are Not Willing To Follow.

For those of us who Think we Can & Will Change the Course & Foundation of Human Nature, They’re Wrong. Not a Little Wrong, But Seriously Wrong, since there will always be a Charismatic Leader who is Evil, Greedy & Insane – who Can & Will Inspire Stupid People to Participate in Doing & Supporting Stupid & Evil Things.

History Provides Us With A Plethora Of Such Charismatic Evil People – Men & Women.

In The Early 1800’s . . . De Tocqueville Famously Said About The USA . . .

The American Republic Will Endure Until The Day Congress Discovers That It Can Bribe The Public With The Public’s Money.

TOO LATE . . . There is no Question or Debate about it. The Politicians are Using Tax Dollars & Borrowed Money (Public’s Money) to be Paid Back with Tax Dollars (More People’s Money) to Buy Votes.

Like Me . . . De Tocqueville was Enthused by the Extraordinary Exceptionalism of the United States of America. He was Inspired by American Freedoms, the Constitution & America’s Unique Form of Government as a Constitutional Republic. And like me, De Tocqueville Worried that America Would Not Last.


But Unlike Alexis De Tocqueville . . . who only Wondered & Worried, I and Millions of Others with Open Eyes, can see the Social Decline of America for Ourselves, as it is Happening.

I Worry . . . That Far Too Many Americans – have Become Too Dumbed-Down of their own Civics, by Educators and the Media, to Understand that their Freedoms are Fragile, to the Point where Dystopia is just one Bad Government Away.

I Worry That People Who Aren’t Qualified To Muck Out Our Horse Stalls . . . Are making Life & Death Socio/Economic Decisions, which will inevitably Bury all that we in North America have Achieved through Hundreds of Years of Sacrifice By Trial & Error.

It Is Obscene . . . that the Freedoms which Built our Societies (Canada & The USA) are being used Against the Very Freedoms, which were over the Centuries Cultivated to Make our Cultures Better.


The Nazis Burned Books, Used Jewish Graveyard Headstones to Pave Roads. The Taliban Destroyed Age-Old Statues. Islamists Tore Asunder Christian Churches. And the American LEFT are in the Midst of Wiping out Southern American History. In Principle, What’s The Difference Between The Aforementioned?

Generally – We are the Sum of what we have Learned over a Lifetime. But as Hitler’s Nazis and other Tyrants knew only Too Well, that to Teach A Child At A Young AgeWhat To Think & How To Think . . . that Child will be Primed for his or her Lifetime to that Process. And This Is Where We’re At Today.

Our LEFTIST Educators have Filled the Collective Minds of our Children since the 1950’s, with Leftist Rubbish-Think. Slowly & Steadily Inculcating our Youth to become Socialists, who are now Adults in our Societies, who are in Positions of Power, being Teachers themselves, Journalists, Pundits, Lawyers, Judges, Politicians & Bureaucrats who make the Rules, Enforce their Rules & Punish People who don’t Follow THEIR Rules.

In A Personalized Socialized Valueless Society, Where Everything Goes – Personal Responsibility & Individual Freedoms Go With It – RIGHT OUT THE DOOR.

As The Title Of This Editorial Says – “People Will Never Stop Fighting”. And Whether we Like it or Not, we have Allowed the Barbarians from Within . . . to Open our Gates to those from Without, who wish to Take what we Have, what we Have Created & what we have Built & Earned . . . But Mostly Our Freedoms.

Personally – I Don’t Care What Most of the Politicians & Pundits Say & Think, since what they Say & Think is Not What’s Necessarily Good for the Country, but Rather, what they Say & Think is what’s Best for themselves.

When President Trump Says “Make America Great Again” – I suspect, to do so, will take far More than just Words & Votes at the Ballot Box. America, like Canada, has Shifted so far away from Government of the People, By the People, and For the People, that to make America Great Again, will take a Real Social Revolution with a Paradigm Change in how we Train & Educate our Future Generations. And The Values We Instill In Them.

In Shakespeare’s Henry The 5th – Shakespeare Wrote . . . “The First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All The Lawyers”. Metaphorically – Add Teachers To The List.

The Revolution Is Upon Us – But Some Of Us Still Haven’t Figured It Out Yet.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov


  • As always Howard, well said, well thought out, very eloquent, and, unfortunately, very, very true. It is so frustrating to watch and listen to all sides these days. One side is hell bent on destruction and the other side sits on their hands living in fear, scared to confront the evil that is lurking. You don’t have that problem and we all are grateful.

  • Corruption destroys Dictatorships and Socialist states in about 50 years or less. With all the Checks and balances built into our system by our forefathers, it takes about 200-250 years for corruption to work its way to the top. We are about there both here in the USA. When the corrupt are blatant about it, you just know that the crash can’t be far away.

  • It is so scary today to send are kids to school but it’s us as parents that need to TEACH children our Conservative values and morals it’s not up to the education system because we all know who pays them

  • It takes a long time to turn a large ship around in the ocean—especially in stormy conditions. I agree with you that The US and Canada are headed in the ‘wrong’ direction—because of ‘wrong’ headed people. It will take devine intervention in damage control and piloting to make things right again—and at my age I may not live to see it. Still we can pray so.

    Don Lott, Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico
  • So true. I have met people born in the 40’s that can’t find the state that they are living in, or can not make change on the fly without adding machine, can not think. These people told what to do so they are monkey hear see and do!

  • Your first paragraph said it all! The longer I live the more I realize how blessed I’ve been to have grown up in a small Southern town in the 1950s. As we moved into the sixties, I didn’t understand so much of the behavior I read about in the daily newspaper. While teaching almost twenty years, I learned what the San Fran, Woodstock, Kent State “scenes” were about and how they originated. But, you nailed it. Keep the faith.

  • I was brought up Catholic and the teaching by the church probably in the background, Give your children to me until they are 7 years old and they wil be mine for life. this applies to all systems

  • Spot on again! Amen!!!!!!!

  • Shared this editorial on my Facebook page and my title: Facing reality. It so speaks to the human race deceived and manipulated by something/someone they cannot see that appeals to SELF without rules or boundaries. That unseen ‘thing’ never mentions consequences. It is the deceived that, when slammed with them, wonders how they could have been so deceived. Temptation is always dressed in prettiest, most appealing garb, any flaws covered up. Remember how it happened in the Garden of Eden.

  • The right have all the guns, the left nothing but hate words. We are heading both here and in the U.S.A. towards a civil war of left versus right. Even Alberta is talking loudly about separating from Canada. trudeau junior is as bad as trudeau senior with the hating of the west. Nothing good is gonna come out of this. Wish I could more but don’t know where to start.

    Robert Daigneault, Laval, Quebec, Canada
  • Noting the many church spires that dotted the countryside, De Toqueville said, “America is great because America is good.” After what the wacko Dem-tards have done to the country, the Trump hat should read MAKE AMERICA GOOD AGAIN.

    Barry Jackson, St Lazare, Quebec, Canada
  • Barry McGuire (originally from the New Christy Minstrels – remember their song “Green Green” ?) had a huge hit with his first solo venture (1965), entitled: “Eve of Destruction”. I remember the words so vividly with that infamous loud chorus: “And you tell me over and over and over again, my friend…ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.” I believed Barry back then, and I believe you, now, Howard. Seems to me…the more things change, the more they stay the same. :>( Brucester

  • Excellent article Howard. A perfect insight into how the leftists are slowly pushing Canada down the slope and into the dark cold abyss that is socialism. Astonishingly, very few Canadians are aware of the catastrophe awaiting them. Canada is a prime example of socialist indoctrination through education. There is a distinct possibility the dumbed down members of society exist in such numbers that they will possibly return the highly socialist, economically destructive Liberals, to power again.

  • You are correct in that “PEOPLE WILL NEVER STOP FIGHTING – NEVER.” This is because there is NO PERFECTION in this world! It is said that HISTORY repeats itself well, here it is! There is NO doubt that, due to the LACK of CHRISTIANITY & RAMPANT HATRED, SATAN is ruling the WORLD! Bring back the TEN COMMANDMENTS which are GUIDELINES to a better society! They are POSTED inside & outside the SUPREME COURT! The RADICAL LEFT IS EVIL & sooner or later, they will REAP what they’ve SOWN! GO TRUMP! AMEN!

  • ….And if you want to know HOW Hitler’s elite SS “death squads” were created in just over 12 years—read Ziegler’s “Education for Death”.

    William Meeks, Negaunee, Michigan, United States
  • We must think positive, and act positive. The left is drowning us with neg. lies and half truth’s. This is to get control of our minds and civic actions and loose our freedom in which so many have died for over the past 2 hundred years. I am sure that what lies ahead for the HUMAN RACE will not be a great period (as it has been past in history). Praise the Lord, keep his commandments and stand for REAL truth regardless of the cost.

    Lee R. Hodges, Largo, Florida, United States
  • Excellent Editorial. Can’t we all just get along? (sigh) God Bless

    Kathy West, Livonia, Michigan, United States
  • Pro 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. When parents abdicated their responsibility to government schools, why would you think you wouldn’t have government loving adults instead of loving God or family?

  • Your right there has always been wars since it seem the beginning of time one way or another.What a bloody shame I must say for our planet. Yes I grew up in the late 40’s and 50’s to me it seemed a wonderful loving time. I do not remember anyone hating anyone (there were some ) in those days & before we all know this. But if we do not teach our children of today better ways your right this country and your’s as well will go down the tubes. Sadly I must say.

    Jacquline Turley, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States
  • Teachers in k-12 public school have very little say in what we teach. It is totally dictated to us. If you don’t stick to the curriculum, you can get yourself fired.

    Betsy Markman, Marietta, Georgia, United States
  • The Hebrew Language in Proverbs says “DEDICATE a child the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Our children have been dedicated to the wrong thing! It is the same word as the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah.)

    Hope Wozniak, Cleves, OH,
  • Metaphorically, of course – Add Politicians To The List. Howard, Please add the “Red Flag” law to your list of bad ideas needing your excellent treatment. This is a really BAD idea. The “Eve of Destruction” cuts both ways. The hippies of 65 and their spiritual descendants, the Obama terror members etal, will run the US into the ground given 4 more years. Despite the good Trump has done, he signed 3 HORRIFIC budget deals & been Mitch’s fool for most of his term. Maybe checkers, NOT CHESS.

    C L Watson, Scottsdale, Arizona, US
  • Boy, Howard, you ARE GOOD! Yeah, evil is BAD, thing, but there ain’t no gettin’ away from it. Come, Lord Jesus! Lookin’ forward to the “sweet by and by”……

    George Myers, Millsboro, Delaware,
  • Look forward often for your great input on ‘things’ North American & the world Howard. Also sending a big U.S thumbs up to our great Norte friends all! Not so much however 180 deg. to the southern border!!!

    Willard P Elliott, Polson, Montana, United States
  • SPOT ON, Howard. I am afraid that the US will no longer be the country that it has been in the past. The US Government is getting more & more socialistic, & that is bad. We are a generous nation but it must stop. Our generosity is draining our finances dry! We need to kick the UN out of the US, stop all immigration until we get some sound, solid Immigration Laws, & the Welfare State must be stopped, as well. Medicare for All will completely destroy the US!!! The Dimwits don’t care for any of us!

    Mickey D Watson, Douglasville, Georgia, United States
  • Dumbed down Canadians elected Pierre Trudeau for was it three or four terms not knowing in their ignorance and stupidity that he was a Marxist. For the same reason they elected his moron radical leftist son who has never had a single full time job in his entitled life but he was cute He could yet be re-elected. We’ll find out in October. If he is then Canada has officially been conquered.

    David Cameron, Lyndhurst, Ontario, Canada
  • Solomon wrote in Kohelet, Ecclesiastes, that “Nothing is new under the Sun.” We should read this poem over and over to understand human nature and how it repeats itself in history.
