A Matter Of Opinion

The April 21 thread

Heard this song on the way to work. It's "Amerika 6.0 (The Best We Can Do)" by Steve Earle. Starts like this:

Look at ya
Yeah, take a look in the mirror now tell me what you see
Another satisfied customer in the front of the line for the American dream
I remember when we was both out on the boulevard
Talkin' revolution and singin' the blues
Nowadays it's letters to the editor and cheatin' on our taxes
Is the best that we can do

So, has your idealism been undermined by the inertia of everyday life?

Consider this an open thread.
