Well Speed. I wish I had your optimism with the world.. but I just don't. At least, not when it comes to the American population. We're not a morale breed, nor are we an accepting one. We want convenience, and things that benefit us immediately, and don't like change or being told we have to change the way we think for anyone or any reason.
Ethical ways are the most efficient ones.. but Americans at least aren't really that way. We've pretty much set ourselves up where the government is so far involved in everything that they have to run everything.. and we have to run everything through them.
