Pushing on a string?

In Canada, there were no social programs and the government refused to go into debt - until 1939. Going into debt to help people was verboten. Going into debt for a war on the other side of the world was perfectly acceptable.

No disrepsect to John Steinbeck, however the great Depression was far worse in Canada than the USA.

Today, how does one save the day with debt when we're already past maximum debt?

I do agree with you that it's a faint hope people will wake up. In 1930 citizens were way more in touch with reality than today's Alice in Wonderland world.

I'd describe the 21st century westerner as primed for a Brave New World. A shame, for them, the people ushering it in are so incompetent they'll just create a giant mess.
