26. I understand your POV but

I think there are countries that are confronting this "old story" much better than we are, and their citizens are far less stressed.

But even though they are stressed & depressed, I think Americans put up with far too much before they begin to fight back. So am agreement with you there. I agree that in this country there is NO choice BUT to fight, or you WILL be run down. But it leads to a very adversarial society where the advantages of actually pulling together for the good of the many and not just the few, are rarely realized.

Life should not be a fight for basic rights. Too draining. We could do amazing and far-reaching things if we weren't having to fight the greedy rich takers who want it all. They will never share, they will never care.

I can imagine a different way of living.
