That is very true.
Many don't. The one's who do? All too many of them are too complacent to do anything. Until it pinches, they won't care...
I'm not really disagreeing with you about the issue... Though it may seem like it. I just disagree that it's beyond salvage...though I'll admit
to wondering occasionally.
It's an article of faith with me, that eventually people, as a whole, will figure it out and do something about it. The riding 'em out on a rail
has a certain appeal to it. So, too, does the tried and true tarring and feathering...
No, I apologize if my words seemed argumentative, that wasn't my intent at all. And I agree that it isn't beyond salvaging except for the fact that
we keep looking for "in the box" solutions and obviously that's a losing proposition.
I especially recall the words of one lady from Texas a few years ago who put it this way, "Last year I was helping out at a homeless shelter and this
year I'm living in one." Its just another reminder of Jefferson's warning about waking up homeless in the land our forefathers won for us.
Not to derail the intent of the thread, but I'll again throw out some out of the box thinking and suggest establishing local currencies to rebuild
local economies and provide a form of buying power for the people where it counts the most ~ at home. The main opponent of setting these alternatives
up, however, is the Chambers of Commerce who discourages local businesses from doing business with anything but the dollar. That, all by itself,
should be a big clue about who the rule makers are.
