I wonder if we wouldn't be better off with a society modeled a little closer to that of Sparta. I think it would have to be more of an ideology that policy based society. With policies to limit the power of the strong over the weak. But never policies to prop up and support weak ideologies. Trust me this is way over my head. At least I know that though and am willing to submit it to you smarter people here. The issues are separate at this point in time but the reason I even mention this is because I am getting tired of being forced by laws and regulations to support those weaker than me. But I am also tired of those stronger than me thinking or being forced to support me. I truly feel over time we are not doing each other any favors. Lets regulate corruption out and let the strong survive. It very well could be that only a new great depression will allow great change to take place. The $64K question is in what way are we going to change ourselves. Or maybe it is in to what pasture are we going to let ourselves be herded.
