Yeah? Scary to think about all the possibilities isn't it? In this time of reactionary governing from the war in Iraq, a nuclearized Iran, global warming, the growing gap between the haves and have nots in our country, homeless families, a precarious oil based economy, it's hard to sort out the shit and clutter and find out what we all want to strive for as a country. Somehow I think we lost our dreams, our determination, our motivation in our deeply divided country. Are we turning into a nation of lazy, overweight, dumb, apathetic citizens, and uninspired complainers? Are we the product of living in a place where we are constantly told to be dissatisfied which what you are, what you have, what you look like, a dark side to capitalism. Do we see ourselves with pure objectivity or are we deluding ourselves thinking we have already made it or well on the way? What are our dreams for this country? What are we striving for? What are our goals? Or is it just about survival these days? Are most people struggling to get by that there is no room for dreams? Or have we all retreated into our private lives, separate communities, a scattered plurality with a "the rest can fend for themselves" view of the country? But it's plain that we all see ourselves as cohesive Americans as evidenced by the 911 attacks. What would a perfect America be like? Where do we go from here? Is America now as good as it gets?
