In the News (from President Obama’s speech to Congress): “…The question is whether, in the face of an ongoing national crisis, we can stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy…. Ultimately, our recovery will be driven not by Washington, but by our businesses and our workers. …
“I am sending this Congress a plan that you should pass right away. It’s called the American Jobs Act. …
“The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. … It will provide a tax break for companies who hire new workers, and it will cut payroll taxes in half for every working American and every small business. It will provide a jolt to an economy that has stalled….”
Comment: If that is what Mr. President really thinks, then he is mistaken at the root. It is necessary to change one’s attitude to the world, to show an example of a country that replaced power politics and economy with a politics and economy of unity.
And to accomplish that, it is necessary to launch a wide-ranging system of worldwide, integral upbringing in the spirit of “mutual guarantee,” and according to the understanding of the new connections in society, to create the economy of the new world—the economy of mutual guarantee.
Only that will help us come out of the crisis!
