Reply To: Heroes don’t always wear capes

Well done

Upton Sinclair once said “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”

To those who don’t wear tights, capes, headbands, wrist bands, masks, fly, swim & breathe under water, swing a sword on horseback, etc, but man a typewriter, telephone, or computer while harnessing brain power and your voice, we salute you and thank you as you with the hard effort you put forth to try to get those who need to understand and don’t understand. It could be here on this website, the other ones that are similar, or just writers who truly understand the messed up nature of our country in this area.

Hitting the human in the pocketbook is the second hardest place to hit them as seen in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs where Safety (economic safety is one area) is the second most needed need to be met (after air, water and food which is first). Once someone has been hit enough there, they may understand hopefully the realization. That is the goal at least.
