I forgot to watch the State of the Union address last night. Grr. What did I miss?

I’ve been troubled lately by thoughts that it seems “freedom” in America only really means “the free market” or that the amount freedom is weighed by the amount of available goods and the ability to buy them.
I’ve also realized that while I possess a rather general sort of abstract wisdom, I’m really not worldly-wise. I don’t know which is more useful, but lack is never useful so I’m going to try to become engaged instead of just sometimes observing the news. I feel like I’m probably guilty of falling into the apathy-trap of American ethnocentrism. I still have so much to learn. This will be good for me, but I don’t know where to start. Any ideas?
