Fifty-five years ago then U.S. president John F. Kennedy famously admonished his countrymen to “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”. It is unimaginable that either of the candidates running for the presidency in 2016 would say such a thing. Too many voters now think government exists to take money from someone else and give it to them. This is the product of a U.S. education system that has forsworn America’s founding conservative ideals and failed to adapt to the new global economy, writes Luigi Bradizza. Thus millions are following Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in a race to the bottom of democracy in America.
