For nearly two decades, our society has been ill.
Growth is low, drop outs from society are at an all time high, etc.
Based on what the educated, informed people who run our society say, I can only conclude that since 2000 we have had
*unprecedented levels of racism
*unprecedented levels of feminism
*unprecedented levels of transphobia
*harsh barriers on immigration that have limited these new Americans like never before
*historic low levels of government funding
*historically high levels of taxation on higher income brackets
*historically low levels of corporate subsidies
It is probably no coincidence that these unprecedented trends have caused us to have the doldrums.
