"Nations with less wealth than ours have higher standards of living, life expectancies, infant survival rates, education levels, vacation days, retirement security, and progress toward green energy. There's no technological reason we can't run everything in this country on clean energy. There's no law of physics preventing us from providing free top-quality education for all who want it from pre-school through college. There's no medical reason we can't have universal health coverage. What's standing in the way is a broken political system, and what is breaking it is in large part the military industrial complex."
