Misplaced Priorities: Goodbye, Bob Herbert

Posted on

The last NYT column from Bob Hebert, in which he pulls no punches:

The U.S. has not just misplaced its priorities. When the most powerful country ever to inhabit the earth finds it so easy to plunge into the horror of warfare but almost impossible to find adequate work for its people or to properly educate its young, it has lost its way entirely.

There’s no time to pull punches anymore. People have to speak their minds, especially when we’ve gone so far astray. Change comes from unity: a common understanding that arises from the recognition that we are not alone in thinking/feeling we’ve lost sight of our common goals and aspirations. Silence is submission.
