We are falling into the same traps old world fell into. While the US marched
forward and took the lead in the global economy by embracing innovation, Europe
clung to it's old ways and largely feel behind, focused on preserving old
ways. Now the tables are turned and we culturally are reseeding into
protectionist and isollationist patterns, and fearing change . Innovation is
what made this country great... Let's hope we don't loose that fire.
Great piece. An indictment of modern day conservatism. The swing has just gone
too far and not only are we polarized as a nation, but we are also regressing.
We need to move forward, people, not move backwards.
