Here's an idea: a strong person, with a strong sense of ethical behavior, who acts to remedy the problems of constituents, who garners the trust of people, and who has the full support of the population of the free world. Here's another: a body of lawmakers who know and understand the workings of their social systems, who minute by minute govern the institutions in those systems, who know the problems of people, and challenge those problems with innovative solutions using minimum strategically placed resources, and who have the full support of the governments of the free world. I need dentures (an 8000 usd hit to my 6000 usd annual budget). I'm talking about teeth to eat and talk. People in El Paso and southern New Mexico need water. People in Puerto Rico need food and water. The United States: a country with some of the best schools in the world, with think tanks, with wealth beyond imagination, with a government, with an intelligent population, with scientists, and with chicken noodle soup. What the hell is the problem so great that we cannot live in a healthy, fruitful, nourishing, loving, and productive society that takes care of people (human beings and life in general) first? It's time to refocus our social systems to that end, and separate the wheat from the chaff, to rebuke the arms dealers, but provide for our defense not by bombing cities into dust, but by caring for the people in them. Today, things do not seem to be getting better, and that is something that should be self-evident. As life in a vast universe full of vacuum and fire our primary consideration should be to cherish and protect that life. There are enemies: volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, virus', asteroids, and especially our own ignorance. What's the problem?
