Has anyone else had this same realization: the people in this country idealize efficiency, easy solutions, shortcuts and doing the least amount of work possible? Just watch a commercial break: "Online college! Get in and get out, no hassle! Get your degree today!" "Why make dinner, when you can order a sizzling Dominoes two topping medium for only $5.99, get it delivered to your door!" "Traffic ticket? No problem: ticketkicks lawyers will get you out of any ticket or your money back" The funny thing is: these things provide a false sense of efficiency, in reality, we are one of the most inefficient countries in the world. Our tax money pays for twice as many government jobs than that is required. These easy solutions give people satisfaction that they have accomplished something: no one is willing to work hard anymore. I think the real American dream, involves laying in your own excrement: never having to move a muscle to get anything done. Just some thoughts and opinions....I don't mean to be a downer: these things I bring up not simply to criticize my fellow citizens, but to push towards a change in thought.
