Whilst I recognize that America is No 1 for innovation, I also question whether

US society has lost its way.

We have seen recently that middle-aged white Americans are dying in increasing numbers from alcohol abuse, drug related illness or simply committing suicide. America also has an obesity crisis.

Perhaps, there’s a case for US national service, either social or military service, to break out of peer-group pressure?
