I was tempted to put this in the good section, but Cynicism: The GOP's Most Destructive Weapon is so partisan that I am sticking it here instead. There is a lot of truth in what he writes, but I can't put all the blame in one place, or believe that people have really given up that much hope. If people really had that little hope they wouldn't be so angry over what is happening. Then again why are people not angrier? Has cynicism really taken over our national psyche, and that is why nothing is really getting done. A firm belief that government won't help, and nothing an individual does makes any difference anyway. Hard questions, I hope that the answer is not a bad as Mr. Reich thinks it is.
