Rewards of Responsibility
Social inclusion isn't just a lofty goal, it is a moral obligation and a huge civic responsibility. Most Americans don't want responsibility; they want the rewards of good governance without helping to make it happen.
To be fair, they are taught from a young age to be dependent on institutions and markets for their happiness and success. Unfortunately, the American model ensures massive social exclusion.
Changing the American model to be more inclusive means challenging social structures of privilege based on exploiting humans and pillaging nature. While everyone knows theft is wrong, few are willing to take responsibility for putting things right. Until that changes, America will continue to be led by thieves.
