A simple attempt at awareness…

Two offerings about America’s top competitor in today’s world market and its basic reason for being… its fundamentals:

·         https://nexxworks.com/blog/what-we-can-learn-from-the-chinese-leadership-model   Folks I’ve read some of this one… have no idea re: accuracy or simple sensibility but I ask this – they make mistakes and they appear to learn… what say thee?

·         And words from one of our east coast schools – pls go to:  https://hbr.org/2021/05/what-the-west-gets-wrong-about-china  My comment – well instead of commentin’ a suggestion as November 8, 2022 arrives… our press, politicians, bureaucrats and others... are they addressing any of the topics raised in this article?  Are we voters demanding answers...?

Does anyone measure – simply... factually… realistically… numerically… or as we simply say… fundamentally… what works… what doesn’t work… learns and modifies… corrects… acts… survives… in America’s various forms/levels/etc. of leadership now…?   Well, I simply googled – will America survive… here are a few fast google responses:  About 2,850,000,000 results (0.76 seconds)

Now, my few words based on almost 8 decades of American life… its ups and downs.   Materialism has pretty much been us Yankee Doodle dandy’s motivation at least for the upper fancy 5…10% of us.   Here are a few words from Matthew 13:12

For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.” 

Folks, we’ve got a problem… DEBT, deficits, worth less dollars, etc. ain’t da’ solution... or da' answer.  Materialism is rampant in America.   Responsibility is miA... missin' in America.
