Of course it's not perfect, it never will be. I'm not a fan of comparing other countries because we are not other countries. Usually it involves more government subsidies. No thanks.Yet we still have our share of problems and people struggling. The scale just slides, and slides, and that's sortof of the point. I don't have any qualms with saying the US is a great place. I don't think it's the only great place, nor the best in every way. But it's got a lot going for it and smart people from around the world keep filling the visa quotas to live here.
There's truth to the idea that at some point it was realized or engineered to make it so that most people do need to borrow for college or for a car or for whatever; and maybe before then it was quite possible to accomplish things in a timely manner without having to borrow towards it. But the big money has already crossed the Rubicon, we aren't going to get back to the old paradigm through any sort of collective awakening in how to better spend our money and how to cast out the corrupt. If it ever swings back it'll be through some form of regulation or massive re-shuffling of the fundamental figures, via war, tech breakthrough, massive unifying purpose, revolution, market crash, etc.
Today on Facebook 3 companies advertising free pilot training. There's literally programs for everyone. Join the military, serve your country and they'll pay for school.
Interesting thing about success that books always fail to deliver. It's 95% attitude and likability. I'm very serious. Psychologist have said this for decades, so many people are bias and this bias tendency just screws up a life like no other force on the planet. Regardless of your country you can ask yourself two questions every morning and if you are serious about wanting the truth you'll know what to do.
1.) What things am I doing to screw up my success.
.........write them out.
2.) What one thing can I do right now that would makeeore successful.
......write it down.
Do this every morning and every evening for a month and watch what happens. America is the greatest place on the planet to be asking those questions. It's not even debatable in my opinion.
In my family we are not allowed to complain. I will smack me kids to the ground if they ever once even mutter a single complaint about other people, the government, society ect. It's a disgusting habit. And they don't. They know full well that the only thing that matters is how they react to the reality laid before them. There's nothing else in my opinion. Life is problems, it's suffering the only way to transcend this suffering is to pick a high aim or goal and get busy working on it. It's the oldest story in the world.and America was designed to facilitate that belief system.
