I live in Taiwan, a country with remarkably efficient and affordable hospitals. I tend to take their medical care for granted, and I tend to assume that advanced countries have few problems running hospitals.
Taiwanese hospitals have their issues, but one never sees maggots falling out of untreated wounds in a Taiwanese hospital.
Then I see a story like this, with actual photos of actual maggots falling out of actual untreated wounds:
The physical maggots are a problem, but they are symptomatic of a deeper problem. The USA has spiritual wounds, and has refused treatment for them. The USA has the spiritual equivalent of putrescent wounds. The moral war was lost before the physical war was lost, and (as Napoleon told us) in war the ratio of moral strength to physical strength is three to one.
