I think the self-importance/entitlement many Americans feel (some times myself included) is why we haven't moved on. As horrible as that day was, smaller scale versions of it go on far too frequently elsewhere in the world. But for many Americans, its just not important if its not our backyard...

I agree. Sad that we wasted close to trillion (when all is said and done), because we got scared.

I think that is true for most cultures, not just the US. Its just not that relevent to how most people go about their days and lives unless directly affected by it.

I think that this is an evolutionary trait that we (most humans) have in common with all other animals (as you can see it is my belief that we are just highly developed mammals) and that is to only be concerned with whats going on around us.

There are alot of people who are not like that, but I think those people are in the minority.

Right and I definitely don't think humans can concern themselves with everyone elses problems all the time. Maybe its the area I live in that magnifies things, but many people seem to be self-absorbed/indulgent/important...

I think the two main reasons we have not moved on are 1) we are not used to being under any kind of constant attack so it was a total shock to us and 2) we have not been given an effective public discourse for moving on.
