actions have ramifications and inaction is action by default. peace is a precondition for affable communications and building in the personal interest sphere as well as the public interest sphere. but the public is us and if we wish to be private in addition to public, then we have to govern ourselves. leaving problems in our wake for other people to deal with is definitely not going to get us anywhere in the long run. the short run is like well - here. just think - the wave of baby boomers starts breaching the system in 2008. the skewl of hard knox will be open for business - everybody eligible. mitigation requires skills - good luck in your aquisition of said skills in 2007.
as i said, i have conceptual problems with the focus of how people expect things to get done withhowdt the willingness to do much on their own.
