And you are who, Josef K.'s lawyer? I'm kidding.
There are a growing number of Americans who are on point & addressing some issues you've raised (you seem to be aware of such efforts). I would not
describe those numbers as comprising the most powerful & influential majority, but the numbers are surging &, most importantly, young adults are
becoming educated & involved in political processes that, with time, may change the landscape and pave the way for reform in the future.
If nothing else your rage against rage got me thinking of culture, climate, and processes that cannot be corrected or changed at the whim of urgency.
Just as you & like-minded Australians cannot institute political & financial reforms according to a specified timeline, nor can Americans. Faultlines
have expanded with time; filling the void requires consensus & time. In the end catastrophic results may occur despite the best efforts of concerned,
active Americans, regardless their political affiliation and educational background.
Your cynical heurism was, in my opinion, unnecessary. Beyond that I can appreciate the conern you expressed in relation to Australia's welfare
concomitant to U.S. stability. I've no wish for Australia's economy/welfare to go to tatters anymore than I wish the same to occur in my nation.
That much we agree on.
