When I first looked at the drawing, I saw human fingers holding onto the reinforcements (gates) but then, I looked again and realized that what I really saw was just iron twisted.  I must have been confused since the helicopters reminded me of the Evacuation of Vietnam during the last days of the Vietnam War.

And to think it was all triggered by a constant stream of lies disseminated through social media.  These lies are pervasive and have penetrated all walks of life.  The mob that attacked our Capitol sincerely believe in their own righteousness. How can we de-program these people?  Germany was able to reprogram their society after the war.  Perhaps the Anti-Defamation League has a good understanding of the syndrome & possible solutions.

This picture is how the rest of the world now sees the US, a symbol of democracy.  Strangely it looks like a picture from a third world country.
