Societies and cultures make the most progress when they focus on two things: (1) the development of human capital, i.e., the knowledge and skills which enable people to develop and implement new and improved products and processes, and (2) research and development. Under the Republicans, there is no emphasis on those factors.
Republican conservatism results in stagnation and in the focus on maintaining existing privilege. That will inevitably result in social, cultural, and economic decline. That is why the Republican obstruction and corruption must be swept aside for the good of our people and nation.
