RE: Paul Harvey's tribute to genocide and slavery
Palangi, the true measure of how free you are is how little you give a fuck what other people think, about how you think. In business relationships, people rarely talk about each other's politics. If they do, I'm not afraid to say exactly what I think. Some people look beyond politics and see integrity in that, and it is integrity that keeps one in business, not politics. Ask George Soros. I'm like him, I'd rather live under a bridge then sell my principles out so I could make a buck.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
