8/21-CAPITALISM HAS WORKED EVERYWHERE IT’S BEEN TRIED. COMMUNISM HAS WORKED NOWHERE. WHY THE ARGUMENT?
The world is sometimes safe and sometimes not for various groups. Germany is safe for democracy-lovers, Jews included. Cuba is dangerous for those who crave more money. Indians were endangered in Idi Amin’s Uganda. White people who fight for bettering the lives of black people walk the streets of America’s South and Christians are newly endangered in extremist Islamic countries. The success of GOP candidate Donald Trump has suddenly made the ideas and energies of multi-millionaires a lot more welcome throughout America. MAURICE KANBAR who invented devices ranging from brushes that get fuzzy balls off of certain kinds of sweaters to a whole new kind of vodka looks at America and the world through a lens that no longer ridicules, denigrates or hates success; a lens that no longer pushes rich people off to one side. Kanbar visits with Sara and Barry this evening.
