How Curiosity Defines Our Future

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.

The Real Price of Vilifying the 1%

By David Harder on the February, 13, 2019

Upfront, I support raising taxes as someone becomes more wealthy.   Anything to the contrary suggests there isn’t enough for all of us. That said, demonizing wealth is one of the most reliable ways to remain poor. We learn nothing of value by focusing on dysfunction. For example, I wanted […]

By David Harder on the February, 7, 2019

The modern culture of outrage has created a landscape where contempt shoots down progress before even putting a seed in the ground.   As many of my readers know, I am posting quotes, stories and speeches from John F Kennedy as a reminder of just how much words from our […]
