What Works in Europe May not Work Here

For the love of all that is good, please quit singing the age-old refrain "We need a system more like Europe's." Many of our ancestors fought a war to break away from precisely the sort of European obstacles to freedom that so many would love to construct here today. The erstwhile Prince Harry demonstrated this phenomenon best when he called the First Amendment "bonkers." It's ironic—and also good—that he has the freedom of speech to say that in this country. And he should have that freedom if he resides here. But how long can a system last where its inhabitants continually break away at the freedoms it grants them? How long can the proverbial dog bite the hand that feeds it? It must feel nice to live in a society where one has the freedom to defecate on freedom itself. Europe, on the other hand, doesn't have that to the degree that we do, and I'm not certain how long we will either.

So enjoy and fight for it as long as it lasts.
