    Maybe you're right.  I hope so.  But I don't have a lot of faith in the American electorate.  I think they will really need to feel the pain before anything will change.

      ...what I don't have a lot of faith in is people tending to evolve their thinking in my direction without help.  Some people simply assume that conditions will give them their vindication in these people's minds, but I think you have to prepare things, prepare the way for people to see things your way.

      That's why I put an emphasis on framing and re-framing things.  We have to create some of the conditions of our success, not just wait for opportunities in a passive fashion.
