Belligerant Americans

Watching television news in the USA is miserable. Too many commercial messages. Too little news, served in tiny chunks, along with "human interest" narratives and partisan political posturing.

One point is clear from the networks I watched: social problems are too often presented as partisan political debates, rather than as unambiguous issues requiring a community solution and professionally-applied corrective measures.

Americans: please get together to define social problems.

Americans: please look beyond partisan politics to those manipulating your outlook.

We can solve our problems by cooperating.

We can only solve our problems by cooperating.
