Happy Thanksgiving, the Un-United States of America

The American thanksgiving to be the Americans, as always, in late November, about fried turkeys attack Thanksgiving is coming up. No other holiday, not even Christmas brings together families and unites them in a Moment of gratitude.

But is not really comfortable to many Americans, 2019. Although the economy is of some masses, and the unemployment rate to a record low, outweighing a sense of uncertainty. You wait on shaky ground.

Worried glances in the direction of Washington

robotization, the dawn of artificial intelligence, the inevitable next recession, the climate change is already a reality experienced: Tend to be timid is to be celebrated, and full of worry look, some to Washington, where the polarisation of the political camps reached with the Impeachment process a new Dimension.

in time for the holiday, the Americans were in the prestigious "Journal of the American Medical Association," a further shock: your life expectancy decreases, the distance to citizens of other Western Nations is growing, although the American health care system is the most expensive in the world.

"people are Worried, and that moves you to self-destructive and unhealthy behavior,"Ellen Meara, a health expert

Not only the General life expectancy is now in the third year in a row, especially young Americans between 25 and 34 years die more frequently. Causes of drug abuse, suicide, liver damage, and other diseases. "Something fundamental, how people feel", is because in the game, said the health expert Ellen Meara from the Dartmouth University, the "Washington Post": "people Worry about themselves and their future, and that moves you to self-destructive and unhealthy behavior."

of Course, the political and social polarisation is not even Thanksgiving Stops. Already, preliminary plans are forged, such as the family peace can be retained in an Era that defined people according to whether they are for or against Trump. Whenever possible, policy is not excluded at the table, so that the Evangelical Trump Fan from Oklahoma Bouncing around with the socialist Bernie-trailer from California and the Feast is ruined.

When Dinner is not on policy

talk to a mutual understanding of the trenches is difficult, which is why Silence is often Gold. That Trump was selected by the love of God "chosen", as the former energy Minister Rick claimed Perry recently reconciled with the contrary view, the President is a scoundrel and a national disgrace. So rather, the debate in the Bud, and plenty of stuffed Turkey and cranberries and serve.

For the American soul there are currently a little balm, a glance, but gives Confidence: If ever the Nation was afflicted, or split, and the uncertain future seemed to be, she pushed at some point were bound up with reformatory zeal forward. Whether the progressive awakening to the beginning of the 20th century. Century, whether Franklin Roosevelt New Deal or the civil rights movement 50 years ago: The American project has to move on, in spite of Donald Trump it is run out of the Track. Happy Thanksgiving!
