34. Energy is the defining issue
.......Always has been always will be.......gotta have heat, water, etc.....I do not believe that violence although a trademark of our culture will rise to a level to which you suggestivly ascribe however I do share your frustrations.....The corruption of our most basic American values is so intertwined with the need to succeed that it is inevitable a cult of personality will barracade/bond itself so as to make for smooth sailing......I firmly believe in the goodness of mankind however our cliche driven culture must realign itself if "we the people"/America is to remain a beacon of hope for the rest of the world.....Nice place to visit, just don't drink the wishes and again nice post
