    It’s a sad commentary that the leading (arguably) developed nation in the world, the United States, lags in social protection, education, culture, and environment sectors of government spending relative to GDP, but surpasses all nations in defense/military expenditure.

    Our world’s obsession with trying to create an ever-growing economy has led us to continually look for new exploits so that profits keep rising. But now we’re starting to see our choices lead us down dangerous roads as the world, through the natural course of human progression, becomes ostensibly a smaller place to exist. Our passion for “more” seems to be finally catching up with us and as our overall spending rises, we’re seeing the difficulty in balancing the choices we face. Sadly, our lack of ability to see clearly is going to lead to further problems in the future if we’re not careful.
