Let's combine the strengths of everyone

In America it seems it's always about division these days. What are we disagreeing about, what are we fighting over?

The truth is, if we would open up our minds we could see strengths and weaknesses exist in everyone, and that collaboration is truly the way forward.

Aspects of capitalism create a competitive market and give us new technology, inventions, independence while aspects of socialism ensures a quality of life for all, and provides an amount of regulation in which ensures a reasonable environment to live in - you need both combined, otherwise you get Venezuela or most of China, or on the other side, Hong Kong - who just pumps out so many products regardless of safety or quality, and has terrible air pollution and the like.

This is just one example, though. So many people have so many good ideas, ways to do things, know what not to do and we can learn, we can adapt, we can evolve and become something better if we would just allow ourselves. This isn't partisan, as adaptability inherently lacks partisanship - it only needs collaboration and desire of the people.

Food for thought.

Good thoughts.

I agree with you.

If I was asked to explain it to a little kid/space alien I would say that there are a lot of badly damaged people who we should feel sorry for before we start saying bad things about them.

That we have to be careful not to let them damage us too.

Sometimes it seems they want everybody to be as unhappy as they are.

It's quite possible you will be hearing from them soon.
