I opened this thread for especially one reason: I think, we all are dissatisfied with current conditions. I don’t know if this is true for you too, but I would like to support change in the right direction. If yes: Have you ever thought about how your country (or the world) should look like, so that it would be more acceptable?
I think if you want change, you previously have to have a more or less concrete idea or imagination about conditions which should come true. And you have to understand which conditions are problematic and should be overcome.
You already mentioned that (1) an extended, lavish government apparatus that wastes tax-money and acts corrupt is one of the problems, that (2) we have to return to the capitalist model of free and open markets and (3) there shouldn’t be any social preferences for the benefit of any minorities.
But is this the complete problem-list of today’s US-American society? If (1) to (3) were solved, would the US be perfect?
