I loved this story coming from a British sister, who understands what the new global community looks like. I think you’ll enjoy her too. In America we are trying to be so politically correct that we won’t profile. It feels to me like you’re only using half the information we have available when you don’t profile!
That was the downfall of the system when we found out the different departments of the government and safety groups weren’t talking to one another. That’s not a good use of our technology and what we are capable of. We should be able to run much more cost effectively than the present structure allows! You cannot legislate integrity. It comes from within. It is a value. We are 50 states of different flavors and spices, that come together as a United States of America. We work under one federal governement that keeps us all bound under the constitution. But we work independently, and inter-dependently for a cause.
Well, here is her global perspective.
