A republic, if you can keep it

Oh well, sorry Ben. We couldn't keep it.

There is so much wrong with this exchange...making profits and wealth somehow evil, promoting the idea that handing out money to poor people to spend will improve the economy or even improve the lives of the poor, and of course ignoring the role the federal reserve itself has played in increasing the income gap.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis
