Repost from Wednesday, April 17, 2010:
It's complicated. We want everything to be linear, to sit in neat piles until we have time to sort through them. But that just isn't how things work. I feel like I am in the middle place, maybe you feel the same way too. I believe in capitalism, in a free market society. It is the best system yet for giving human beings liberty to live a free life. I am a proud American. My family has lived the American Dream for as far back as the 1600s. Nobody ever became a scion of society, but we've all gotten by just fine. A few hiccups here and there, but really nothing to complain about.
