It's hard to believe that the economy or its mismanagement is the major cause of America's decline. All one need do is take a studied look at the social ills ,such as ; the general listlessness and malingering of the youth of this country, and it becomes evident that there's more involved.
Americans generally suffer from a get rich quick mentality and it's hard to convince a teenager that hard work is the best way to create wealth.
The media ,that feeds the culture, is not conducive to creating the mindset needed to promote a sense of individualism and self determination in anything other than a depraved desire to be like everyone else, and as cool and popular. This leads to the eventual loss of time and into drugs ,crime and degeneracy.
When you're young ,it's easy to waste time ,but it's time that can never be made up.
This country doesn;t know a thing about how to excite the imagination of its youth and so it condemns itself to forever alienating the one resource that is vital for any nation to succeed;its youth.
it's not the economy,the situation is simply a symptom of a greater disease ; the disease of malaise and aloofness that spreads out from the popular media and infects almost every kid in america.
Those who know what I'm saying, shield their kids from this social curse and they are the ones who arrive at positions of wealth and political control.
and most of the time ,they are the most unfit to rule.
Do you want to fix the economy ? Then fix the nation's youth and jobs will come.
