My previous post was a quote of the day. From this column by Dr. Tim Nerenz.
"And yet all of the trappings of modern living that we have come to
depend on have just come into being in the past 200 years. Ask yourself
why. Why did this not take place in any of the other two-century
stretches in the history of our species? They were smart, they worked
hard, they understood mathematics, and the iron and oil and coal was
right there in the ground the whole time. What changed?
America - that’s what changed.
For the first time in the history of the world, the person who “built
it” got to keep it. Liberty – that is all that it took to free the
unlimited human capacity for enterprise and advance the living standards
of the human race beyond comprehension."
Now I know why my favorite talk radio, Viki McKenna, host calls him her favorite blogger.
