Re NYT article about the Right’s resistance to raising the minimum wage.

 

When young, I believed (as did most people in America) we were the good guys in the world. That is no longer true. We know there is something terribly wrong with us – as a people and a nation. The USA is a purveyor of injustice at home and in the world. Our misuse of mass military might and the desecration of the planet goes along with – is indeed the result of – greed manifesting itself in every direction we look. Resistance to a fair minimum wage is a sinister clown’s mask covering inhumanity. Putin uses phony justification for his pending conquest of the Ukraine. So too does the American Right have convoluted reasons for our bloody shark feeding-frenzy as we drift toward the melting iceberg.
