The national deficit is a problem.
It erodes faith in institutions that should be acting in good faith to bind us together.
The deficit creates artificial conflicts with real consequences, and separation with real differences.
The deficit decreases national, regional and local credibility of elected, appointed and promoted leaders and serves to further deepen the chasm between those who are clever enough to pay attention to the game from those who still watch American Idol.
Some people opine that “We’ve always had this deficit,” or “It’s always been this way,” but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take the necessary hard steps to reduce our deficit.
Some of those steps require hard self-analysis and the courage to tear down old, institutional structures and to erect new ones.
The national trust deficit is a huge problem.
