For some reason that I cannot really fathom even in these Orwellian days, no one seems willing to mention that there is a massive problem for the world’s economy and all its inhabitants. The global population has surged since I was born 57 years ago while technology has been hard at work obliterating jobs. And this process of job destruction is just now picking up steam.
One of the things I’ve learned in my life is how important ideas are. For too many years it was fashionable to appear tolerant of ideas, regardless of how off-base they might be. Politeness, or political correctness, trumped integrity in most conversations, and has led to an equivalence of ideas. This has proven extremely detrimental to the lives of so many as there are indeed right ideas as well as wrong ones.
