I weep for the present. I remember many protests on the Bezerkeley campus and many others in the 1960's. That generation of graduates have been university instructors for years. They have turned out almost 2 generations of progressives. This is a big factor in the current woes.

You Don't Have to Stay Poor

We will all be poor until there is a revolution of thought - a modern tax revolution that rejects the concept of production taxation. Until the power of corrupt federal and state institutions is curtailed, we shall mostly be the servants of the government,. rather than government being in service to the people.

The only chance for restoring capitalism lies in a (bloodless) tax revolution - the repeal of the income tax and introduction of the fair tax. The alternatives are a bloody revolution or slavery for all.
Harold -- I largely agree with you. Ponder that we now call "computers" are more fancy terminals that connect to a "cloud" wherein the true power and leverage of computing lies. Notice "the cloud" is an attempt to centralize and control knowledge, information, and action.
