I am not necessaily talking about feminism, more of removal of parental guidance. You have grown up in a culture where people all view each othere members of this group. The idea of america that tempts everyone, is that yes we are americans, but first and foremost we are our own individual selves responsible and accountible to reap our benefits or our failures. But some people can not really handle that freedom, independece so then government such as our entitlement minded one start to "progress". But you cannot force someone to be responsible for someone else including your luxurious lifestyle, speaking of the nationistic elite" without it blowing up in your face.
The real idea of freedom depends on the compassion and decsency of people to care for each other when times get rough, not have the government rape you more and still provide sub par resolutions.
I am sorry if I don't make sense, but I am not a politically minded person or philospher. I am an analytical scientist by training and education. but I can see what is working and not working as I learn more, at least for our country. I work for the second largest pharma company in the globe in the vaccines division, and once I am secure enough I will be moving to the country opening a farm with grass feed beef, free range chickens, and organic produce. I want out of this system that is growing.
