The problem is to know the direction to take to get there. I happen to think that the problem is with the concentration of wealth and the influence it has on leadership. The Power System needs to give up the endless conquest of greed and give back to the people who work for a living. The demand for fewer regulations and fewer taxes on the wealthy can not last.
