"The Hour Is Getting Late"

How is it that the world's greatest nation, the world's richest nation, can become in a generation the world's biggest debtor? How can it be we cannot even afford health care? How can it be we don't make our own stuff anymore?

I know there are stories and explanations and excuses that try to answer those questions. I don't care. I'm asking if it makes sense. And I'm saying it does not. There are problems in America, serious problems, that have yet to be acknowledged. Simple problems that have grown serious through neglect.

No... Not neglect. The simple problems have grown serious because we misunderstand the problem, and our solutions make things worse.
