Hello and Thank You Winston!
America may be a wealthy nation, and may have great material wealth but it's flat-out impoverished in social, family, traditional, spiritual, genuine love and connection, and mental/physical well-being. I believe some of these problems affect other countries as well but America serves as the most startling example, due in large part to the giant culture of denial that exists and spits on anyone who challenges the status-quo.
On to lighter matters...I have quit my job, saved money for travel, cut my ties, and I'm getting the f**k out, at least for awhile Right now I'm just going to Taiwan, but it could start a longer term living abroad and travel to more places.
Winston, You are the type of person that sees/feels something wrong and does something about it. Respect!
