This great nation of ours is under siege from an entitlement mentality and the belief that we have a right not to be insulted, intentionally or not. Its roots are in government welfare handouts but it has grown into, as you say, "the mistaken belief that every perceived injury or subjective wrong can and should be remedied by payment of money." It’s amazing to me how our once great legal system has degenerated into instant paydays for the slightest grievance. And the more successful you are the bigger a target you become to those looking for a free lunch.
Gone are the days when misunderstandings or perceived insults or wrongs - whether real or imagined - can be resolved without the threat of lawsuits and cash settlements. Acts of good faith are seen as weakness and admission of guilt. “Pain and suffering”? I pray we can return to days when those words actually mean more than a slightly bruised ego or a bit of embarrassment.
As to your newfound advocacy of reforming the civil tort litigation process, I have one word: Godspeed!
