Why we're doomed

Our culture is drowning in bullshit.

We're actually spending precious time disserting on what beer our President is drinking. We're doing man-in-the-street interviews about Gov. Deval Patrick's black lab puppy's trips to the corner office on Beacon Hill. We're listening to job-hunting advice that puts personal branding above, you know, ability.

None of this is about the important questions we face. Health care? The economy? Boring.

This is why we're a culture in decline. Asia deserves to be ascendant.
