Just read the whole column

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.
