Taking the blinders off,
Many Americans (unfortunately) have their blinders on when it comes to looking at how we should treat the recent victims of hurricane Katrina. Many Americans feel that the government should make them whole; meaning the government ought to restore all people to their original condition before the disaster. Why do Americans believe such things? In short, because those same Americans don't believe in individual effort and its power. Life guarantees nothing; the only true dependence comes from within a person. Capitalism recognizes this fact; Capitalism takes the blinders off of people.
