I'm hearing music from another time

I had forgotten about El Salvador.  Or, better said, hadn’t thought about the conflict from the late 70’s into the 80’s, that had ultimately led to US initiated and backed counterinsurgency programs, that destabilized the region, and specifically any attempts at social democracy.
And then, I happened upon an article about the murder rate in El Salvador increasing by over 50%.
El Salvador, according to the United Nations, is one of the world’s most violent countries.  And, all so  we can sit on the Internet and or TV and watch nonsense, and update our status in peace.
