only 5 of 28 NATO countries contribute their "fair share" to defense spending.. oh so typical of members of a group to be lackadaisical in their efforts, knowing others will naturally (have to) step it up. how rude ! &unjust! 4 once, be about it, please!
as soon as the teacher even mentioned the dreadful "group project," the nerds in the room knew they'd be taken advantage of.. as much as it SOUNDS/looks romantic on paper for all of us to "contribute equally".. think for yourselves, did everyone in the group "contribute equally"? or even all participate? of course not! save the romance for your boo, not politics.
USA's free market system may not be so "compassionate," hindering your success every time you make a bad decision, but it's the best system that works with imperfect humans. just live a pathological life, like jordan peterson says! you know what you're supposed to do /you just ignore it too often. when everything matters, every choice is a decision on what kind of life you will lead. with great power comes great responsibility, the infamous quote reads. it's you versus you. (sheesh &we wanted to grow up!)
can't blame your worries away or there goes responsibility of the individual &what kind of world would that be? (a liberal's dream, that's for damn sure, because you'll look for the government to be your "bail out" /till they run out of other's people's $$).
props to.. PL, GB, EE, GR, &US for contributing their "fair share." the world relies on you!
