Speaking to a group of camp counselors in Atlantic City today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that America suffered from a “fun deficit.” Her proposed solution? “Adult camps,” where people from red and blue cabins would be forced to talk to one another about politics:
As I have gotten older, I have decided we really need camps for adults. And we need the kind of camps that you all run, I mean, really. None of the serious stuff, none of the life challenge stuff. More fun, I think we have a huge fun deficit in America, and we need to figure out how to fill that fun deficit, certainly for our kids, but also for the rest of us. We need a reminder of our skills from time to time, maybe some enrichment, certainly some time outdoors, maybe actually spending time with people we didn’t know before.
The goal, she continued, would be for people to “have to come together and actually listen to each other.”
