Nov. 8 was a clarion call. The world of the 20th century is gone, and this new world has left may of us frustrated and angry, Some haven’t noticed, but it will eventually affect us all.
Concentration of capitol, automated manufacturing, mass sea transportation, uneven tax regulations and big-box marketing have impacted traditional business. Old skill sets have become obsolete. New ones are in short supply.
We are in danger of losing the manufacturing leadership, world political leadership and moral leadership we enjoyed in the 20th century.
Blaming won’t help, We have all been asleep. Lust for power, selfishness and apathy are clouding our judgment. We have left those displaced to fend for themselves. We must find develop solutions for our nation. Unless we all win, in the end we all lose.
We are all faced with the fallout from a changing world, and have to work together. Everyone and especially our political leaders must quit acting like school children, bickering, playing obstructionist and do the hard work they are being paid to do.
