9. I feel that you are right, and we obviously need to bolster that spirit.
There was a great lady here, Auntie Pilahi Paki, who said that in coming times (now) the world would look to Hawaii for the key, and the key would be aloha.

From Auntie-

The Aloha Spirit is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the Self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others. In the contemplation and presence of the life force, Aloha, the following unuhi laul loa (free translation) may be used:

Akahai, meaning kindness to be expressed with tenderness;
Lkahi, meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;
`Olu`olu, meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;
Ha`aha`a, meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty;
Ahonui, meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance.

These are traits of character that express the charm, warmth and sincerity of Hawaiis people. It was the working philosophy of native Hawaiians and was presented as a gift to the people of Hawaii.

Aloha is more than a word of greeting or farewell or a salutation.
Aloha means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return.
Aloha is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective
existence".

Aloha e Tx4obama, keep the faith brother.
