My father had a few really innovative ideas to start his own auto business but we were dependent on his benefits when we were growing up so he never took the risk of leaving his corporate job.
A world class public education system (like we used to have) is tremendously empowering.
Our current system is a nanny state for the über poor and the über rich. With everyone in the middle footing the bill and getting very little to show for it.
