I would like to spark a discussion on what I feel is the largest issue plaguing the western world today. I will give a few examples from my
perspective and hope to hear from others. Is this all different depending on if your state is red or blue? What are your experiences?
The fact that Liability in auto insurance is required by law shows how much of a mandated pampered state we live in here in U.S.. So many think they
are entitled to freebies, comfort and luxuries when we don't even have the infrastructure yet, or the technology abandon economy. When you step out
your front door and enter your car in the morning, aren't you acknowledging the inherent dangers of leaving your home?
Anything could happen, right? Meteor strikes, earthquakes etc. But today at least in my state, should something happen it's gotta be someone's fault.
It's as if risk must always be tied to blame.
This is our reality, it's perfect. And in that, we came to exist. People need to get out of fairy land and acknowledge that reality functions the way
it functions. Guarantees are hard to come by. And yet, we let for-profit organizations FORCE monthly subscriptions on insurance policies. These dudes
want to act like they can construct a mathematical formula to everything and pretend that reality has to follow their models. When something
"unforseen" happens, everyone is on a witch hunt for whose fault it is, all with absolute faith in these models that have ACCEPTED failure rates.
What's sad about it is that although many of us want to see local, national and worldwide improvements in our civilization, MANY of these said people
want to be entitled
to this change even though they don't even want to be accountable for themselves or the negative influences their
careers/jobs/activities may have on their hopeful ambitions.
From College grads expecting their hands held to employment, to teachers with tenure; to department managers who hire friends in exchange for favors
and to senators who sit in office for a salary all the way to nuclear meltdown management It's widespread, this lack of accountability and this sense
of entitlement and it's destroying the quality of our society. But what can we do about it? Some of these people have held positions for so long this
way by having been constantly given in to.
Yet it's so deeply ingrained into our society that you can't just start removing people and systems without collateral effects on families and
How big of an issue do you feel these problems are? Please explain your stance. Should greed triumph civil responsibility?
