So in the past week, the crumbling economy structured roughly around policies based in the Pleistocene Era has eliminated my Mother's job and in the Super Happy Motoring world she was stopped at a red light and plowed into by a driver going 60 mph. Luckily, she only sustained minor injuries, but in one of those not-so-ironic, not-so-unexpected collisions (pun intended) between the related worlds of economy and cars, the driver was uninsured to top it all off.
The question everyone needs to ask when they get mired in ideological debates and mundane issues is, "is there a better world out there?" And, "how do we get there?"
But first, put down your Ayn Rand. It was too boring anyway.
