Happy 4th of July to all of my U.S. readers! Let us take this opportunity to celebrate our freedoms and obligations under democracy and capitalism.
Those who remain ignorant of history and current events are easily steamrolled by the empty rhetoric of democratically elected officials. Holding elected officials to high standards requires you to be well informed.
Those who remain ignorant of businesses’ profit motives are easily steamrolled by empty promises of “valuable” goods and services. Holding businesses to high standards requires you to be well informed.
“Well informed” includes expanding your horizons beyond MSNBC or Fox News or whatever sources reflect your political biases.
