A question I received: What is your opinion of how Americans are reacting to the crisis?
My Answer: I have two comments on this:
1. Americans are hoping to wait it out, and for everything to quickly end of its own accord.
2. They are placing big hopes on Obama. The public expects that once he comes to power, everything will be fixed within a couple of months.
But neither of these will happen! There may be short periods of “intermission” – but they will be followed by another blow! In addition, the crisis still hasn’t been expressed in a multi-faceted fashion; people still don’t see that it is interconnected with everything, including the high divorce rates, depression, the ecology, natural disasters, massive famine, and the outbreaks of violence and infection that are happening everywhere. We’re only reacting to it now because it got to our wallets. However, the crisis in science, upbringing, the family, and so on has been going on for a long time! But like true egoists, we only react when something goes wrong with our money! However, now we also have to feel the other facets of the crisis, which we did not react to previously.
