@CraigL - You do a great job of explaining why the generational crisis goes WAY beyond partisan politics or small regional events. The nature of the crisis is a culmination of the previous 80-100 years of ideological debates and is much more than just Dem vs. Repubs or one nation against another. As you so rightly point out, the climax of the crisis is the reconciliation of all those years of debate and disagreement. I also like your analysis of the nature of capitalism back in the 1800`s and early 1900`s. How quickly we forget.
