    It's pretty obvious this Country is on a downhill slide on a very slippery slope. If you don't believe that then there's no point in your posting anything.

    Question: What do you think is the best method/way of helping minimize the the inevitable?

    The metric I use to assess our situation is simple; when havoc is created, chaos ensues and catastrophe is inevitable. Historians will assign the time line(s) - or maybe your method/way involves addressing a particular time/grievance

    Yes, I have an opinion- but, I'd like for people to stop and think about what they believe best path to take and present an implementation.

    Well, Chicken Little...The sky is not falling just yet..I believe that we are in a time of transition--and that a lot of people..especially older folks...are ignoring the positive just a bit.
    Yes, the right has lost the cultural battles of last century..but that's not a bad thing..IMO. People are getting enough to eat...and medical care is available to all..at least at a basic level. The demographic is changing..for sure...and that's scary to many.

    Climate change is the biggest hurdle facing the next few generations..so I'd address that...move my people from the coasts..invest in companies that will boom when the East Coast goes bust.

    Although the inevitable can't be minimized, it can be delayed. Historically, the biggest change agents have been war and migration. Modernly, military war is being replaced by culture war. And as technology grows with exponential speed, our focus has become ever more self-centered.

    Perhaps the development of sex robots with AI will lessen to impetus to attack or control others?

    Too many complexities in flux for a simple solution, but if i had to generalize , i'd have to say we're not honest about who and what we have become as a society, people, nation....

    Nope..we're tossing the leftovers out...all that moldy baggage from the last two centuries..the God madness...the sexist BS...the racist BS...all of it..on the trash heap of history.

    As for figuring it out for ourselves...well...that ship has sailed, for me, but better that--for the next generations..than perpetuating the tired mistakes of the past.

    Keep democrats out of power. That is the best way to keep the slide from happening. Then, we fix the republicans...get rid of the non-conservative republicans.

    That would go a long way....politically.

    Then, start a campaign to encourage 2 parent families.....homes with 2 parents, homes with a father, stabilize a society......fatherless boys and girls create crime and poverty.

    Dunno who 'you guys' are. I'm into my 70's so..I suppose you're right...LOL! As for the generations of the future..they will have to pay for the mistakes of the past..same as it always goes in history..but the Boomer mentality---is not long for our culture--we just are not going to be able to afford it. Our grandchildren will curse us..our dithering..our short-sighted spending.

    But hey...to the aged..who cares, right__________pismoe?
