    Our rapidly complexifying media environment has made us more oriented toward information, perception, and aesthetic than raw, primal, physical action.  On the low-brow end this is exhibited in entertainment obsession; on the high-brow end, in phenomena like Daily Kos, where political ideas and memes are born.  Americans are not cowards and not lazy jerks, we just have too many things going on to be single-minded unless the problem is very personal and immediate.
