65. I admire and appreciate the spirit of this post.

I don't deny that we would all benefit from a better appreciation of our common humanity. I agree that we might all benefit from some mandatory public service (though that also implies a slight loss of the "freedom" we cherish). It might be nice if life were not competitive, but, from what I can tell, life is competitive, and it makes little sense to dismiss and ignore that fact.

As it relates to gender, this is a very touchy subject, but I strongly feel that the gains women have made in power over the last hundred years necessarily imply a loss of power for men, and what I describe in this OP are the disastrous results of that dramatic change in the power balance between the genders. My hope is to minimize the damage and to get people who vote for the "masculine" party (the Republican Party) to stop voting against their best interests. We need new strategies to appeal to them.

Thanks for the response.
