Americans once traveled that road but have veered off. Too fat, too
comfortable, too lazy. What's the motivation? As you often see me
write, change happens when the pain level becomes high enough. Modern
pains include commutes, taxes, crowding, traffic, and as always,
prices for food, clothing, shelter, fuel, disease care. And rules.
Like the frog in the heating water we accept gradual greater
regulation which equates lesser freedom. Our American subspecies
being security driven, I see revolution far off.
