45. Yes, atiitudes like the op's are what make my hubbie and I want to move to Europe where "community"
is valued more than "ME ME ME." That's why they have the NHS in England, etc. -- and say what you will about the NHS, at least they have health care, excellent public transportation, and other services for residents like childcare.

These are more mature cultures than the U.S. where "I got mine" rules the day, to the detriment of the health of the society as a whole. There is a concern there (Western Europe) for the whole of the community that there isn't here.
