  •  It's time to create alternative institutions. (4+ / 0-)

    The current institutions of America might be in terminal decline (not necessarily, but there's plenty of support for that thesis). However, the solution is not to give up. Instead, focus on getting involved in or creating alternative institutions that can rise as the existing corrupt ones fall. JMHO.

    The most serious problem in American politics today is that people with wrong ideas are uncompromising, and people with good ideas are submissive and unwilling to fight. Change that, and we might have a real democracy again.
