My hope is that overcoming the adversity ahead will produce a great generation at some point. Its in a teenagers blood to reject their parents ideas and be unhappy with the status quo. Being left to pickup the bill (national debt) will piss them off. The worse things get the more likely it will happen. Our government and big business like the Chinese model and will continue steer us in that direction. Theres only one thing in there way at this point, old white men with guns. As we die off i do believe we will lose the battle. It will fall on the next generation or the one after that to come back and win the war.
