  In reply to: Yes, you're wrong. More Oprah is not the solution.  posted by Ofcr. Tim McCarthy

How about having a community wherein people give a shit about each other, so that my problem is your problem, and vice versa. How about building social networks of real interaction and a common sense of purpose?

"Honest, hard-working, and God-fearing" sounds like an ideological hobby horse you're riding, and the other side of the coin of the kind of individualism it takes to enforce a Protestant work ethic and a rugged individualism that strives for personal virtue is precisely one in which people find themselves alone in a sea of self-determining, self-actualizers.

Good > Right
Society > Me

Ok, end rant.
