I can relate Mark. There is so much to learn. Each morning when I wake up, I thank God for another day, and then get excited about what I will discover in the world today. I am amazed at how many people are hesitant to expand their horizons because they are in fear of the responsibility of new knowledge.

Reminds me of the title of my recent article: the trauma of discovering the truth. The fear of responsibility of new knowledge is the consequence of acting on curiosity and honoring truth. Many Americans cannot accept that responsibility.

Yes! Somewhat surprisingly, Europe dropped the nonsense much earlier than did the US, Canada, and Australia. Even England joined Europe in moving on rather quickly. I still see Western Europe as a lost cause over the long haul, but Central and Eastern Europe have done a pretty good job (far from perfect, but pretty good) in resisting top-down centralization and the corruption of public health.

As far as US cities are concerned, I think they're all cooked. To find freedom here now, you must go to towns and rural areas that are managed entirely by locals who aren't bankrolled by the DNC and unions.
