The greatest failure is that although we have created institutions, we have not created a civil society.
Don’t come home a failure.

Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care.
