I don't mean passing laws, but a debate discussing the morality that drives policy for or against the interest of the people. Dialouge is needed to change the landscape of our resolve as Americans. We still hold a lot of secret feelings of values I think that must be addressed for Americans to progress. What do you think?

thanks becky, I ask this question because policies doesn't get passed from social indifferences. So few policy makers put themselves in their constituents shoes and only think of who's paying them more or a reelection prospect.
So true kahana, To make policy society must address why we welcome the very scene we frown upon. There's a shooting but no law amendments. A guy rapes kids but there aren't stricter pedophile restrictions. horrific events doesn't shape us we shape it
The media is the ones responsible that's why we need some things to be non profit. Police and doctors should fall under the same category.
agreed Beata, I don't have enough money to be a reformer in this country. The same problems exist for us Americans though too many social issue get in the way of furthering our society. discussing problems truthfully leads to beneficial policies.
I'm voting you up manningnd! So true, the cycle of violence just keeps on going and people- and kids- need to be shown a different way because if you grow up in violence, it's likely all you know.
Great issue manningnd, beyond policy or before you get to it, there needs to be some introspection of our personal lives. Everything starts at home and thats where I think the debate should stay or in a public forum. Talk must start before policy!
Exactly alya, this is the fundamental hypocracy in our policy making. The fact that jobs require extensive education that most of the population lacks is a problem which goes unnoticed untill we compare countries or are having an election year.
