I was watching the discovery channel the other day and watched, “Doomsday prophets.” It was a group of men discussing the fate of mankind. This one man (sorry that I didn’t take notes and could tell you his name,) but he stated that with our current economical state (spending nearly 20 million dollars an hour for the United States to remain as we know it) that it can not go on for very much longer without a collapse of our economy, or reform.
The problem is ours as americans and we know the problem is there but because we do not know what to do about it, we ignore it. He gave a reference in a little short story:
There was a damn and it was going to burst at any moment. Three miles down river, a village was frantic and trying to decide what they should do. Two miles down river a village was some what worried about the problem and one mile down river, a village was acting as if there was not a problem.
When we can’t figure out how to fix a problem we put it in the back of our minds and go on. Till… like now, our government is in a state and trying desperately to figure out a solution.
