Violent crime has been going down steadily since 1985. Income for all classes have risen steadily in the same time period. Reports of crimes against
women are up, but that's because women feel more comfortable now reporting about domestic violence than they did before (reports are up, not
incidents). Discrimination has lessened by all barometers used since the 1980s, but there has not been enough tests to measure in terms of present
Men are making wages higher now than ever (though women's wages have stayed the same since early 1990s). Children are receiving more attention to
their difference now than they did 5 years ago (if they have a disability, it is more noticed and handled now).
The desire for less dependence on foreign energy resources has risen steadily since the EPA was formed in the 1960s, due in part to a free press. The
EPA has evolved into more specific regulating agencies that intervene when outside interests try to turn the US into a dependent on their sources
(it's not working, lately they've figured it out and stopped trying).
The jobs that have been lost in the US over the past 50 years have mostly been jobs replaced by technology or by workers in developing countries that
are less costly, thus making it possible for Americans to buy stuff cheaper. That "sale" you went to at Ross is brought to you by a free press who can
print out the ads and a textile retailer who can afford to give them to you cheaper than you would have paid last week.
The reason you feel so awful about everything is because you choose to feel awful about everything. It is not because everything is awful. It's
because someone told you to feel like they do, so that their feelings go down in history as the right feelings. They really don't care about your
feelings at all. They care about being right. They care about being important.
You are always free to turn off the radio or the TV or the computer and sit for long hours, pondering what the world would might be like if it was all
Why don't you do that?
