A Moral Solution

A Greek tragedy, playing out on a massive stage with the whole world as their audience. Is there any way to avoid a calamitous collapse? No, I don't think so. But not because it isn't possible to avoid collapse, more because Greek society is no longer capable of the moral strength necessary to succeed. Moral Solutions. That is what is required. The people, of America, much less Greece or any other entitled nation, must decide voluntarily to forgo the benefits of the gifts they have voted themselves over the years. How else will it resolve? Will the youngest generation go to work nosing that 10, 20, 30% or more of their labor and effort will go to paying for the luxurious lifestyle of their grand parents? Will the middle aged folk be content to forgo their benefits, scheduled a mere 5 to 10 years hence... While their neighbors win out because they have lived already past the magic deadline? No. Tey will not. The people who a currently entitled must blaze the trail. They must wake up and say "No, thank you." They must decide to forgo their free CNN to ensure the opportunity for their grandchildren to work for and earn a new lunch. The current entitlees must must make the moral decision to work for their own bread rather than enslaving the next generation(s) to a tab they will never settle themselves. It is not moral to take food from your babies. ...but if the people do not come to this decks option voluntarily... Well, the there will be violence.
