You don't have to look very far to see that things could be better. A good example is parents working two jobs to afford things they don't need, while the kids are in daycare ten hours a day. I don't say it's always like that, but in may cases it is. To me, that's backwards. Do they really need two new cars, smartphones, cable, ect? Is it worth letting a daycare raise your kids?
It's not much of a wonder that there are some strange problems in North America. Too many people focused on acquiring things as oppose to enjoying what they have (like their families).
Agreeing to disagree is the tool of the loser, in order to seem like the better man, when in reality they know that they have no way of proving their argument, and see no point in continuing. It's quitter talk.
I say this in the most constructive way possible... I see how tenacious you get on these issues and I simply don't care to engage in a sprawling discussion about it. I guess you could say I'd rather spend time with my family than argue on a message board. If that means I lose the debate, that's a consequence I can live with.
