Educating the Future
It is a struggle to point out and define the numerous problems that are negatively affecting the economy. While some may question what acts of liberty should be imposed into the American society, my efforts would be somewhat spent on finding ways to better educate our youth of the actual force government is capable of. If a better sense of knowledge is given to our youth relating to negative government intervention, they will be far more driven and better directed to impose policies that depend on individual support rather than the use of governmental force. It is evident in American history that the collective decision of the majority is not always taken into consideration. For example, the government’s decision to enforce the Patriot Act resembles the lack of care for individual freedom government takes into consideration. The absurdness that our government is capable of completely putting aside public policy in order to advance their curiosity, while saying this country was founded on freedom, is the type of uneven power our future should understand. I feel that we grow with the imposing nature that government is used to benefit and aid in finding equilibrium for society and while in some ways it does, our dependency on the regulation continuously grows until we no longer understand what freedom actually is. By educating our future, I do not mean the use of force to impose liberal aspects, but rather advance their possibilities in understanding government capabilities. This also aides in preventing negative outcomes from government enforced policies. While the question “what can be done to fix and make the economy better” desperately seeks an immediate answer, an elapse of time where our youth is individually driven and educated will aid in the growth of liberty in our future economy. Many wish to debate the regulations imposed by congress but fail to understand their history of political viewpoint. If we wish to better our society and achieve a higher sense of liberty, instilling knowledge in our youth is the path that must be taken to ensure our economic growth and quality.
