The crisis of democracy in the West is not the result of falling in love with another system.

They do not dream about government that controls Internet and puts in prison those daring to disagree.
Engineers in the developed world should be arguing not for protectionism but for trade agreements that seek to establish rules that result in a real rise in living standards. This will ensure that outsourcing is a positive force in the developing nation's economy and not an exploitative one.

Real prosperity comes from everybody in the country working together in a growth mode. Real prosperity comes as a result of people's own initiative and efforts and so forth.

Whether at work, at home or in public, we have been trained to believe that who we are at the core of our being is often unacceptable.
