These kinds of things happen with regularity in America these days. Let the rest of the world be warned. The context of this execution is that the ethos of the American Christian Conservative (ACC) now has hegemony in the United States.
If you’re curious about why there has been no justice for Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, this is the reason. Ken Kratz, Brad Schimel, Norm Gahn, Paul Walker—all men who at various times held the fate of either Steven or Brendan in their hands, are all beholden to the toxic mindset of the ACC.
I should mention that I know the culture of the ACC very well because I grew up in it. At bottom, it is a worldview mostly informed by the bible, or, at least the ACCs interpretation of the bible. These are the people who control government right now, and that is something which I hope you find quite terrifying because their belief system is, or should be a relic of a bygone era. The following list is a fair representation of what they believe and how they think:
- Jesus is coming back, and we’re probably in the Last Days.
- Global warming is hoax perpetrated by the Left. God promised mankind the earth, and there is nothing man can do, even if he tried, to despoil it.
- Evolution is a satanic idea foisted upon the world by secularists to deceive mankind
- Any form of socialism is the handiwork of Satan. This would include such things as social security, government food benefits for the needy, and universal healthcare
- Capital punishment is good thing
- You cannot trust anyone with a college education, especially if they have a liberal arts degree of any kind.
- More politicians like Roy Moore and Donald Trump are needed
- God wants you to have guns. Lots of them
This is just a partial list, but it will hopefully give you some kind of idea of the mindset, and I expect conditions in America to get a lot worse before there is any hope of anything getting better.
