  •  Somebody needs to rethink insurance (8+ / 0-)

    too. Insurance is the invisible banker on which most of economy is built.

    Climate change has already challenged the model and is not sustainable with droughts and floods and fire and extreme cold.

    While I think everyone can grasp what you're listing here, it has to hit them directly in the pocketbook before they react.

    •  too many people (5+ / 0-)

      view insurance as some sort of lottery, I think.

      Just look at the resistance Single Payer Health Care got.

      Far too many people don't want to pitch in to pay for the misfortune of others,

      mainly by assuming that somehow they themselves,

      will magically remain misfortune-free.

      Until that day, the unexpected happens. Then they want cheap insurance, and govt assistance.

      on that day THEY really need it.

      What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
