Thinking Lesson Four -- Trashing Government
Lesson 4 is going to be very short. And very important. I am speaking American now because I am one. so you who dwell in other parts of the western world wear this shoe if it fits.
It is fashionable now to trash "The Government." "The Government" is corrupt. "The Government" is useless. "The Government" spends too much money." "The Government"
is stupid. Please keep these three things in mind when disrespecting the American "Government."
1.) Our government is functioning as it was designed to.
2.) "THE VOTERS" of America are responsible for this mess -- NOT -- "THE GOVERNMENT."
3.) When tracking results about public policies, there is a time lag of 15 to 20 years before the down side of what seemed like a good idea will manifest enough
for communities to notice.
Think about it.
THINKING ASSIGNMENT #4
1.) What changes in design do we need to make to our political structure in order to clean up this mess?
2.) Keeping in mind the time lag mentioned in point 3 above, which generation of American voters are actually responsible for the nightmare mess of public welfare and social security?
