    I still support it even though I don't like where it is. It's not the people running the government or the foundation of the system that's wrong. The problem is with potential American voters. If we took more interest, then we could change things but most have succumbed to apathy. They simply can't "waste their time" on politics or political issues; Their lives are too hectic and complex as it is. Maybe some day we will collectively recognize this and take back our responsibilities as American adults.

    I really believe people in western civilization really don't know how good they actually have it. It's as though we have no perspective outside of idealism. The concept of perfection is ruining everybody's appreciation for reality.

    No political system ever devised has succeeded in changing human nature. That nature involves creating societies of unequal power and influence, motivated by greed, selfishness and the simple desire to control others, and so about all that a political system can ever accomplish is to temper this nature to some degree. I think ours does about as good a job in this regard as any other in theory, what with its system of checks and balances, but the problem lies in the way it is currently practiced and the lack of vigilance in maintaining that temperence.

    How does "exploiting the rest of the world" bring freedom and democracy and human, civil, labor and environmental rights to the West?
