Roger’s comment shows what’s wrong with the USA, bitter old selfish nasty selfishness. We’ve created a country steeped in zero sum game still fighting it out for survival rather than uplifting each other and moving forward. It shows in the lack of innovation coming from the country, lack of American students in our best universities (I live blocks from a major top tier school and we are educating China. American kids can’t afford it.). It shows in our health care system where we treat old rich people so they can live with dementia well into their 90s and we leave young people to pay top dollar or die. It shows in stagnate salaries and decreased work benefits and decreased work safety. We allow fracking despite earthquake problems and toxic water tables. We’re set to destroy all of our natural resources so they can be scraped to the bottom for coal and oil. We’re increasingly allowing poisons to be used in and near schools. We allow them to put just about anything in our food, things outlawed in most of the rest of the world. Now our policies resemble those of countries we previously considered evil. Gotta make those rich fat cats richer and fatter.
