“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”
The Newsroom is an HBO television series that cuts clear to the bone and the opening scene of this series is pure genius. It speaks about American facts and how we are statistically lagging in many areas.
In three minutes, this scene argues that, in fact, America may not be the best place to live. This political show gives us much food for thought when we compare the good old USA against other countries.
The video clip may make us uncomfortable, but it is an uncomfortableness worth bearing.
I checked the facts that were listed (about poverty, education, income and mortality, just to name a few) and the information is spot on. Watch this and prepare to be enlightened.
