The U.S. has never been keen to accept the obligations that come with occupation. So it sells the freedom/right to work to be self-sustaining and provide a revenue stream.

Greenspan’s characterization of the elimination of family farms and homestead as “liberating assets for the market” was totally accurate and cynical. Now we are supposed to be surprised that people are homeless?
