  2. Very good interview Jim. I liked that it hit on several items: higher education was good.

    Nice work Mr. Bacon. Love the groovy intro music. Reminds me of Booker T. and the MG’s.

    Heard it in my lap top. Interesting but any journalist who cares about injustice is a “social justice warrior?”

    1. Yes, it’s both interesting and unfortunate how the left has taken over language.

      “For its proponents, “social justice” is usually undefined. Originally a Catholic term, first used about 1840 for a new kind of virtue (or habit) necessary for post-agrarian societies, the term has been bent by secular “progressive” thinkers to mean uniform state distribution of society’s advantages and disadvantages. Social justice is really the capacity to organize with others to accomplish ends that benefit the whole community. If people are to live free of state control, they must possess this new virtue of cooperation and association. This is one of the great skills of Americans and, ultimately, the best defense against statism.”
