Our Fantasy Nation? -

Our Fantasy Nation? -
Guess what country most resembles the Tea Party's prescriptions for the USA?

Oh, and this:

"I’ve always made fun of these countries, but now I see echoes of that pattern of privatization of public services in America. Police budgets are being cut, but the wealthy take refuge in gated communities with private security guards. Their children are spared the impact of budget cuts at public schools and state universities because they attend private institutions."

The melting pot works when everyone contributes their share to the common good. It melts down to a Third World Privatopia when they do not.
