• 12-28-2016 I doubt you can get any agreement on any point. It seems to me that the USA hit a high point around 1890 to 1900. The downtrend was clearly signaled by the passing of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. The 20th century was a pageant of fiscal mismanagement, all made possible by the Federal Reserve creating money at insane rates. The roots of the problem can be traced way back, just depending on how far back you want to trace them. As for values, you can't even get people to agree on what is a good value and what is a bad value. You might recall that "knowing good and evil" was one of the serpent's lies to Eve.
  • I was still only 13 when the 20th century ended, so I missed most of it. What's so wrong with the 21st century? It's here and now. You can't revive the 20th century.
