I agree. Although I have to say that having spent part of this year in the US, in the middle of all 'that', the one thing I took away from the sizeable amount of reading and observing I indulged myself with... how almost resistent the society is to a) developing an understanding of the basic precepts of their system, and b) how the decimation of the Middle Class isn't being protested as, say, wars have been.

I fear that the motivation just isn't there and inertia will prove to be the deciding factor as to whether or not 'triage' is performed. (I"m purposefully leaving out the various elements of complicity of those who have either engineered this dynamic or promulgated it, because in the end, it always comes down to the degree of apathy present in the populace. And the variety of apathy rampant in the US is super-fuelled.)
