Another Side of the Micahel Moore Capitalism Thought

The Whole Point Of Capitalism - Forbes.com

Well, is Capitalism evil?  You tell me.  From what I read here is if capitalism is done right it will work.  Why does it not work now?  I conclude it is government.  Government seems to regulate the wrong side of capitalism making it easier for corruption.  If you are going to regulate, should you not regulate corruption OUT of the system instead of encouraging it?  Oh, I forgot, many politicians are corrupt.  Whatever happened to those who want to see our nation succeed? 

I fear we will never see the idealistic "Star Trek" age.  I know I will not.  Will my children?  Yours? 

Socialism suppresses progress, so that is not the answer.  This brings up the other question:  Where does progress come from and what system works best to entice progress?

Oh, so many questions.

Here's A Side We Rarely Hear

The UN & Israel

So, I like this perspective.  We always hear about how Israel "beats up" Palestine, but are we that blind on how Palestinians and Hamas started the whole thing? 

What do you think?

Free Speech?

Yale draws criticism for nixing Muslim cartoons - World Faith- msnbc.com

I like this:  "Intellectual Cowardice". 

Too many people have too thin skin.  Between violence and cowardice, this world is hurting.

Prattle: I like that Word

Ignore The ''Leadership'' Prattle - Forbes.com

This is a very interesting article and an interesting point of view.  Yes, it is an Opinion.  Remember those?  Everyone has one. 

Anyways this "leadership" thing hit home as I've heard the same speech 20 years + ago!  The same drivel.  I agree with the author that higher education is NOT meant to make leaders out of everyone.  Not everyone will be a leader.  Not everyone wants to be a leader.  In some cases the non-leader with common sense get better jobs than the type-A brainwashed leader. 

Anyways, you decide on your future, but I think the deans and "leaders" of these universities should rethink what higher education really means.
