Could we ever be like than again?

I spent yesterday afternoon at a WWII museum. It was a stark contrast to what I see on the news. There were no signs of petty politics, no adding extra personal pet projects to bills. Instead it was a country single-minded in its goal of winning! I was amazed to see that even saving kitchen grease was considered patriotic. Everyone in this country sacrificed for the good of the whole and many did without so we could reach our goal of winning the war. It stands in stark contrast to today, no one is sacrificing anything. We have real problems and we can seem to agree they need fixing. Some want us to continue the way we are, others see the cliffs and are warning of impending doom, and no one is listening. I wonder what it is going to take to change the current political climate, and I hope it isn’t what it took back then!
