I have traveled extensively in Europe. I will grant that their healthcare system from this distance seems better but that would be it. Europeans have very small lives. Italians strongly dislike Germans, and French. There is a very real sense of class separation everywhere I traveled, in that the youth feel they are at a dead end, there is no chance of ever movng up, Do neo rads really want us Americans to shrink our lives and futures to the smallness of the European life? Europeans see children as burdens, Europeans seem to believe in nothing but the self. Europe seems to have no courage, Darfur was Europe's chance to show fortitude but it did nothing. Other than health care, why would anyone want to mimic the cynicism of Europe? Their movies even reflect nothing but cynicism. Name any innovation or image from Europe that reflects optimism.
