When Valjean steals a loaf of bread, he is condemn to serve nineteen years in prison. Today, when plundering mobs ransack stores, there are no consequences other than some stores forced to be closed and their employees dismissed. That’s all that needs to be known about pillaging mobs who grab the most expensive items and run to take them home for sale, or for their private use, or for their friends, or for all of the above. Avarice is not limited to robber barons.

“Senator Lindsey, Abortion, and I”
I’ve written two articles, one of which I posted on August 27, 2022, titled Abortion; the other, titled My Body, My Choice and posted on June 10, 2022, two months earlier than My Body, My Choice. This bleep was written and posted here on September 14, 2022.
It’s so encouraging to know that the senator and I are on the same page for so critical an issue.

To Winston Churchill’s assessment of democracy, I add:
Most government leaders in a democracy are ordinary people who are entrusted to deal with extraordinary political demands which keep democracy barely better than any other form of government.

The most effective force in terms of the elevation of an individual’s morality is the singular power of art. A book or play or film can change the direction of one’s life.

Yesterday, I heard that a woman was pushed down a flight of stairs by a homeless man. Three of her ribs were broken. Some government outfit will reward the homeless man with almost $300 dollars for every day he reports for rehabilitation. He will earn about $17,000 if he reports for the full rehabilitation period. I’m sorry for the woman, but am ecstatically thrilled by the homeless man’s success!
