Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 06/17/2019

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 06/17/2019

 

Something like 167 Democratic candidates are about to debate over a couple of nights. I’m guessing they’ll attack each other, attack the President, and promise the stars and the sky. They’ll talk about free education, forgiving student loans, climate change, and free healthcare.

What I’d like to hear about are their positions on restoring and improving our infrastructure; improving education, particularly in the inner cities, through better funding alternatives than property taxes; reducing addictions and deaths from opioids; better treatment and facilities for the mentally ill and homeless wandering urban streets; reducing racism, sexism, ageism, and anti-Semitism; preventing school shootings; and creating more intelligent fiscal policies.

I would think those are bipartisan issues. The original goal of government was to defend the coasts and deliver the mail. Let’s focus on health and safety and a society where there is truly justice for all. If there’s a statesperson in the bunch, he or she will focus on presenting a pragmatic agenda for all our good, not merely an attack on everyone else, and not some plan to run an industrial nation on wind power.

There’s too much political wind already.

 

Political language—and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists—is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. — George Orwell
