    What is the State of the Union?

    Is racism strong in the USA?

    Are the USA people causing big problems in the world compared to Europeans or Chinese or South Americans?

    Are Democrats actually pure as snow, as they say they are?

    Are Republicans evil for wanting all people to be free?

    Is there an improper pay disparity between corporate heads and the workers?

    Is it proper for states to promote Agenda 21 to the hurt of its own people?

    It depends on how you define racism: If you define it as legal discrimination based on perceived racial differences, then there isn't much racism like that left in the world. If you define it as negative and unfair stereotypes of ethnicity, along with discrimination based on skin color, then there's still quite a bit of that, but not just in the US, also in Europe.

    Are the USA people causing big problems in the world compared to Europeans or Chinese or South Americans?
    Europe is thankfully too ineffectual to be able to mess up anything. However USA along with Europe and China are some of the biggest polluters in the world, except for plastic pollution which comes mainly from countries like Indonesia.

    Are Democrats actually pure as snow, as they say they are?
    No, neither are Conservatives.

    Are Republicans evil for wanting all people to be free?
    No, neither are Democrats.

    Is there an improper pay disparity between corporate heads and the workers?
    Yes, ideally (in my understanding) wealth should be distributed along a bell curve, but since rich people are much more able at earning money it becomes a slanted bell curve, with the the right most trail reaching a lot further.

    Is it proper for states to promote Agenda 21 to the hurt of its own people?
    Fighting climate change should be done on a balance between the economic inconveniences it will cause, versus the cost it would have been to adjust to the climate change. That should be part of an ongoing discussion going forward.

    That's a lot of questions. I would say that :

    Racism is strong in sectors of the USA. It exists in all of us to some extent.

    Democrats are not as pure as snow. They have as many flaws as Republicans, and I say that as a Democrat. I only wish more Republicans would say that about themselves.

    No, Republicans are not evil for wanting people to be free, but they are not alone in wanting people to be free. Democrats also want people to be free. The two groups have different conceptions of freedom, ie freedom from what and towards what.

    Yes, I think there is an improper pay disparity in many cases between corporate heads and workers. I don't think a CEO is worth 2,000 times what a shop worker is worth, especially when the CEO has undue influence in setting his own pay.

    I'll have to familiarize myself with Agenda 21.

    Thanks for the responses. I asked questions to grease the skids, so I didn't expect everything to be answered.
