To say, “I’m for the unions” isn’t adequate . Unions are conservative. Give them power and they’ll slow progress. Union bosses can be corrupted because they’re human beings. Continue reading

The self-interest of today's tech barons is consistent with the preferences of the modern Democratic Party. Tech companies rely on human capital. Money isn’t pulled from the ground, it’s developed in classrooms and bedrooms. Continue reading

The Inconvenient Truth of our time is that life must be re-engineered, and the balance of nature re-built, if our species is to have any hope. This is the war the generation we call “millennials” will be fighting, all their lives. Continue reading

In my studies of history here over the last decade I have learned that every crisis is based on the unfinished business of previous crises. We are taught in school how the Civil War was made inevitable by the compromises of the Constitution. But the Civil War is still being... Continue reading
