Mostly I just think that as human beings, we don’t change things personally and we don’t do it collectively until something really motivates us to change it. It’s not about freedom, or anything like that. If people perceive they’re doin’ alright, they simply aren’t going to change anything.
What we do is pretend as though we’re changing things — enthusiasm for Obama’s campaign with its vacuous and nebulous calls for "change" as exhibit one.
One might entertain the notion of a Hillary! as president if only to see what America is really made of. My guess: not a whole lot. Not anymore.
