Brooks on America’s Future

And apparently he needs sunglasses because it’s so bright.  Why is he so happy?

“Over the next 40 years, demographers estimate that the U.S. population will surge by an additional 100 million people, to 400 million over all. The population will be enterprising and relatively young.”

and

“As the rising generation leads an economic revival, it will also participate in a communal one. We are living in a global age of social entrepreneurship.”

Sounds good to me.  I wonder what the political ramifications of this shift will be? Thanks to our parents, our education and technology we’ve embraced a new approach to many areas of our moral and social lives.  Why not politics?

Relax, We’ll Be Fine
