How do you feel about the responsibility of the government towards the young people (18-25) regarding the economic and financial crisis?
I believe it is a big deal now more than before. For the first time in history, people of like minds are able to communicate with each other and lend support and Ideas ( like we are doing right now). With such support the world is awakening! We can compare ourselves and our plight. Arab spring is a result of this! as is OWS.

One of the issues with this conversation is the idea that there is no longer an equal playing field when it comes to the ability to find ones own way or work toward the "american dream". Certain injustices' need to be addressed about how we can achieve our dreams. How are corporations allowed to claim bankruptcy steal pensions from workers and reward top management with millions in golden parachutes? Why are Bank bailouts Paid for by the public used in this same way? We aided the Banks in this to save or serve the greater good. there are safeguards in place that aid us in time of need to serve the greater good as well. Medicaid medicare etc. and these institutions are under attack in this time of uncertainty undermining our trust in the "greater good contract we have as american citizens. 100 years ago about 80% of the population was self employed and now about 20% are self employed. So corporation's have grown to a massive scale and control more of the government than we the people do. They have changed the rules and the landscape, and receive preferred treatment due to their economic power.
