How many of YOU are producing something?
That's a ridiculously broad question. One needs to look at it from a macro-economic perspective. I help produce oil and gasoline from black goo, but the black goo is being shipped to us by foreign religous kooks and oil fascists. I would much rather be using goo produced from our own coal or goo substitutes produced from sunshine. Sunshine and love, that's what I'm all about, so shut the fuck up.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
