Response to Recursion (Original post)

6. The U.S.A. cult of small family farms and small business is ugly and harmful...

... but there are too many billionaires making money off it, even as they crush the hopes and dreams of those ignorant enough to fall for the scam.

It wouldn't be so bad if the U.S.A. had stronger social safety nets, such as universal healthcare, universal safe comfortable housing, and healthy food for all, so that nobody who crashed would burn.

Mandatory life imprisonment for predatory lenders might also be a good thing.

But until then, there's a sucker born every minute, and plenty of people willing to bet that their own small farm or small business endeavor will be one of the few that succeeds.
