There are two reasons people do anything:
- They want to to it
- They are afraid not to do it
The thing that’s wrong with America is that nobody wants to do anything, and nobody is afraid of anything because consequences have been removed.
In education, the kids don’t want to learn and they have nothing to fear if they don’t. In society at large, nobody wants to work, and nobody is afraid of starving to death because of all the social programs we have. So, these two, simple little rules have managed to bring one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known to its knees.
