9. That's what I'm counting on
These patriotic Americans want to change the whole system to more closely resemble the one that they have created.

And your last paragraph just thrills me. I have had a sense -- and occasionally saw glimpses that validated it -- that they were creating what I called "new forms" out of which an entirely new, and different society would be born. I sincerely hope you know what you're talking about, because I definitely want what you're sellin'. :D
