You mean to tell me that alot of people aren't most comfortable blaming someone else for the problems of the world? I'll grant you that some of my
opening post was a bit of hyperbole, but as with any good hyperbole, there's more than a grain of truth to it...
Problems with the banking industry? Well, instead of holding ourselves as the customers, stockholders, etc... for not practising a bit of oversight,
we're all too willing to blame the evil bankers. My question is, who let them get away with it? You know that answer as well as I, we did...
Problems in gov't? Well gee, who put 'em into office, and then decided that watching Seinfeld reruns is more important than practising oversight,
attending meetings, and other means of being involved?
One person, in all likelihood, can not change this, but a bunch of one person's can... This is, instead of blaming that nebulous other, what we need
to be doing. We get the world we deserve...if we aren't willing to do the work, we'll get what we deserve.
