Sure, we’re less important politically. That’s a fact. And the way things are now, we’re probably less important culturally too, as much as we’d like to believe otherwise.

Until we figure this out, we’ll always have this empty hole to fill, a chip on our shoulder. There are bigger things in the world to be concerned about.
