America is in a mortal crisis.   The country is flat broke; everybody knows it, yet nobody wants to face facts and do something about it.

 

If we want to salvage what little is left of what we nostalgically call "The American Dream," we're going to have to find a lot of money.   Nothing else will help.

Street protests are fun; there's nothing youth enjoys more than a block party, with risk.   But in the end, they don't end up to much.
