Agree...not solutions maybe, but we certainly need to identify the problems first.

A key problem, as I note above, is an ignorant, naive electorate.

Churchill warned that it is easy to appreciate the limitation of a democracy/republic simply by interviewing the average citizen/voter.
1) Our Congress passes bills that run into the thousands of pages; then we're surprised that the bills are full of loopholes, set asides for lobbyists and toxic clauses no one seemed to know about.

2) We've replaced telling the difference between right and wrong with legalisms; then we're surprised that people are always looking for loopholes and technicalities to get out of fulfilling their obligations.

3) Feminists denigrate men, tell them to behave more like women and are offended by chivalry; then they're surprised to find that our society has been inundated by passive, wimpy beta males.
