During my daily commute I’ve been listening to the book “Don’t Know Much About History: Everything You Need to Know About American History but Never Learned” (http://amzn.to/nGQl0J).
It’s amazing how similar the times we live in now resemble the Gilded Age’s concentrated corporate wealth dictating to government the policies and laws that only increased the imbalance and led to economic collapse.
My kids understand the the lunacy of our generation better than we do. They know how badly some of us have gone astray and screwed things up. I’m encouraged by their morals, ethics, and sense of right and wrong.
