We are so concerned with spending and money, we are forgetting that the real issues we should be concentrating on, are improving and expanding. We call ourselves civilized. We obsess with little bits of paper that have no intrinsic value of their own, and our people go hungry or suffer in pain when they cannot go to the doctor or the dentist. Many of the young are poorly educated and uninspired. As humans, we scrabble among ourselves for worthless dominance when cooperation will work so much better. No, this is not civilization. We are barely one step above the cave-man.
