My main issue with all of this is the fact that we are refusing to act, to take the hard steps and do the hard work OURSELVES and are instead passing
the bill to our children and grandchildren.
Our grandparents gave us one of, if not the, greatest nation on Earth and all we have done is squander their work and turn a deaf ear to their
I can only imagine in 50 years, if things continue down the path they currently are, how much hatred that generation will have for ours when they are
knee-deep in inflation and debt.
As someone who has children, I totally and completely agree with you that we are robbing future generations..
I disagree, however, that our great grand parents left us the greatest country on Earth. The seeds of our economic downfall were planted in our
grandparent's day, and they allowed that system to continue because at the time it was quickly and vastly rewarding. No one wanted to consider that
living in a debt based currency system would have bigger and badder crashes as the timeline progressed.
Our grandparents hatched this problem, we're dealing the the beast it spawned. Sadly, I don't think the world is ready to defeat the beast, instead
they will just temporarily satiate it's hunger.
