Crushing national debt. I agree that stimulus payments these days are probably necessary, but how will this end?
Taken from President Jimmy Carter’s – A Crisis of Confidence speech in 1979:
The confidence that we have always had as a people is not simply some romantic dream or a proverb in a dusty book that we read just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea which founded our nation and has guided our development as a people. Confidence in the future has supported everything else — public institutions and private enterprise, our own families, and the very Constitution of the United States. Confidence has defined our course and has served as a link between generations. We’ve always believed in something called progress. We’ve always had a faith that the days of our children would be better than our own.
Our people are losing that faith, not only in government itself but in the ability as citizens to serve as the ultimate rulers and shapers of our democracy. As a people we know our past and we are proud of it. Our progress has been part of the living history of America, even the world. We always believed that we were part of a great movement of humanity itself called democracy, involved in the search for freedom; and that belief has always strengthened us in our purpose. But just as we are losing our confidence in the future, we are also beginning to close the door on our past.
We shouldn’t be worried plz stop that shit. If everyone is worried, then nothing will be done. I’ve seen many in this comment section who has basically given up on life. It’s honestly pathetic
The god Capital yet propounds the carcinogenic gospel of Endless Growth.
Simply put, human economies need to stop seeking growth, and need to instead seek to serve the benefit of all
We’ll all die and our conceptions of the “beyond” will finally be challenged.
