Grandma had left her TV on the History Channel and it’s basically a program about American infrastructure. The part we had arrived at was about bridges and roads crumbling.
It’s really sad what has happened to us and even worse is that, to a certain extent, this isn’t 100% this current generation’s fault. Not even the generation before us. The major thing that sucks about infrastructure, at least here in the US, is that it’s all completely based on old bad technology. Sure, it probably was the best back then and it worked for them but unfortunately it just doesn’t work for us anymore. It’s no longer the best technology available to us. It’s no longer good enough for how we use it these days.
A big problem that can be blamed on us though is the tax aspect. People hate taxes. The only problem is is that, to a certain extent, taxes are a “necessary evil” to have a good working civilization.
On the other hand I understand people do get upset about taxes when it is wasted, when it is lost, when it is passing Go and going straight to politician’s pockets. It sucks. I understand but I also understand that in order to see tax dollars at work we need enough taxes to actually be able to afford to fix things. If we don’t have enough to pay for fixing streets we first need money to actually pay for it. Hopefully others also understand this problem.
I’d hate to see what kind of circle we would see when we look intricately at every single problem that leads to one bigger issue. Other things will always show up.
Just a simple brain drain.
