Don’t trust the oligarchs
To the Editor:
According to my eighth-grade American history teacher, Jan McCracken (RIP), one-third of the American colonists fought for the revolution, one-third fought against it, and one-third sat it out. History is a useful lens to understand what is going on in our country and the world today.
The billionaires and those doing OK in our economic system don’t want change. The survival of the fittest mentality would be OK except the billionaires start wars and damage the environment, manipulate the economy, and do not give a hoot about anyone else, including the supporters they need to keep operating (not rich supporters, consider the cost of health care and health insurance, whose profits go to investors).
Were our founding fathers crybaby socialists or people that cared about the common good and doing what’s right (slavery not withstanding)? The very rich are doing all they can to keep us divided and confuse the issues. Please, please, please, think for yourself and don’t buy into their BS.
