My wife was born and raised in Cuba.
I just asked her and her friends what they think of this “controversy.” Verbatim response:
“Los americanos no tienen problemas entonces se los inventan.” (Americans don’t have problems so they invent them.) https://t.co/i1sDPI4Uwr

“Los americanos no tienen problemas entonces se los inventan.” (Americans don’t have problems so they invent them.)
That is unequivocally true.
Every problem facing America today is either directly caused or exacerbated by bored, neurotic, privileged people, who have never had any serious challenges in their life, and have a deep and compelling need to fill their vacuous existence by meddling in the lives of others.
Everyday I think Robert A. Heinlein was right in Starship Troopers, that the franchise should be restricted to those people who are civic-minded. Not necessarily or exclusively through military service, but some method of separating those who understand the gravity and responsibility of participating in the civic process and those bored neurotics who should probably have no more authority than being allowed to take care of stray cats.
