It's interesting. I applaud the young lady for the level of self-examination. The thing is, though, every society has rules and expectations of its members, and every society seeks to "train" its members to become productive parts of it. Even the simplest hunter-gatherer societies -- people who had no conception of something like a "paycheck" -- did it. It's paradoxical that our society is enlightened enough to produce people who are capable of examining and criticizing this reality, yet...

It has nothing to do with how liberal the president is or isn't, it has to do with his campaign promises, and the fact that he is willing to sacrifice ANY [ self-funded, nothing to do with the deficit ] social security merely to appease republicans; and to still, at this stage in the game, even be trying to 'compromise' with republicans at all, is astonishing.
