Interesting quote from the comments on a blog I read:
At various points in time I thought we had a growing anti-government, anti-rich, anti this or that attitude going on. Instead, I think it is more general. There’s simply a general “everything is hopelessly stacked against me” attitude. Regardless of the specifics. Why is that? Where did it start? More importantly, though, I think the question is how do we fix it?
