It’s not all sunshine and roses: Florida’s beaches are no-holds-barred, and the people who live there have a lot to worry about.
From a national perspective, it’s hard to argue that Florida is better off than other states.
In fact, it ranks number nine in the nation for the number of homicides per 100,000 people, behind only California, New Jersey and New York.
And yet, the Sunshine State’s population is growing, as is its wealth, and that wealth is increasingly concentrated in the hands of the very few.
It’s a system that has become so ingrained that, despite all the problems that have plagued the country over the last century, its citizens seem content to remain in their privileged position and live in a way that the rest of the world has long abandoned.
