Beridian: "I think there are possible solutions, but these are all but unattainable in today's polarized political climate. There ought to be strong incentives for employers to choose to hire people rather than choosing technical solutions when the difference is slight. There should be powerful incentives for poor people to stop having children that cannot be properly cared for. And there needs to be a return to a culture where corporations are strongly affiliated with our country instead of what Hedges referred to as being "Supernational" and paying allegiance to no nation."----------------------------Unfortunately you are correct: solutions are unattainable given today's political climate. Just look at one of your solutions: fewer children for those who can't care for them. What is happening right now in state after state, most of which have the poorest populations? Banning abortion. And forget about strong affiliation with our country. Mitt Romney hides his money overseas and does not believe in paying taxes for the greater good of the US; he is held up as a great businessman, a man that ~50% of the population say they will vote for. Greed is obviously the dominate force in our country now. It's depressing. It just seems hopeless to me.
