    He lived a long, rich life (no pun intended).

    Control in modern times requires more than force, more than law. It requires that a population dangerously concentrated in cities and factories, whose lives are filled with cause for rebellion, be taught that all is right as it is. And so, the schools, the churches, the popular literature taught that to be rich was a sign of superiority, to be poor a sign of personal failure, and that only way upward for a poor person was to climb into the ranks of the rich by extraordinary effort and extraordinary luck.
    Missed but not forgotten. RIP.

    I read "People’s History" on assignment in a class in college. It's colored my view of all history and modern life, ever since. I can't think of many books that did that, and I read a lot.

    He taught us how to DISSENT. Something we don't do anymore, as we now just roll on command. No cojones.
