The Issues of American Excess: Accelerating, Damaging Megatrends
Is 21st Century America the Nation that we valued and trusted during the 20th Century? Does 21st Century America exhibit fundamental moral, ethical and economic inherent structural weakness? Washington D.C. is out of touch with these and other issues. These are the questions thinking Americans discuss and prognosticate daily. Questions relating to where America is headed during this perilous, tumultuous 21st Century.
What would our 19th and 20th century ancestors say about an American culture driven by exploitation, greed, debt and bailout? What words will future generations add to describe this first adult generation of the 21st Century?
Is America soft and vulnerable in ways which exhibit danger to future generations? Is American capitalism of the 19th and 20th centuries now outflanked by Capitalism of 21st Century Asia? Historically no leadership country/economy has survived forever. Over the centuries all major economic former powers have softened, weakened, declined and become comparatively powerless.
Is American 21st century patriotism real . . . or largely annual 4th of July show and tell? What about the Deindustrialization of America; do you support it? Perhaps support deindustrialization subliminally when you shop; without full consciousness awareness? Has the American Dream degraded away from the Land of Opportunity toward the Land of Entitlement; structured around an emerging Land of Cultural Mediocrity?
And, finally, can America sustain gridlock partisan political posturing which simply does not equitably confront, discuss and solve the big issues such as those listed above? Read about American strength and weakness which simply must become clearly identified and come to solution. The sustainability of America depends upon it.
On our watch!
