Terrific article that I encourage everyone to read about social wealth...

Social Wealth by David Brooks.

I loathe putting this well-written and timely piece in Politics & War because it belongs in Life. I urge you all to take the time to read this piece and to reflect on it.

We have lost a lot of great posters here because they do not agree with other folks politics. That is a shame. We need each other, and we need each other more now than at any time in the last 20 years. That is my take.

Many folks here are unhappy generally with politics being discussed, even if we have the option to opt out of that category. And the site monitors do a wonderful job of keeping us in line, to not abuse those category distinctions.

One of the reasons I post here on politics is to process. At various times, I may be uncomfortable with what is happening in our country and sometimes I need to work through that. If I have overstepped, please excuse even forgive me for that. I labor to be fair, to research, and to not be inflammatory when I disagree. Further, I want to believe that I respect everyone's opinion, even when I disagree with it with all of my fiber and soul. But like a lot of folks who post here, I am attracted by the train wreak, cannot look away, and use this forum to articulate my views via data and background, even though I know the likelihood that I change someone's mind is remote.

That said, I firmly believe we need each other, I need you. I just want to say, that I value each and everyone of you folks in this community. And I am so pleased even with the negative aspects of the politic category to be part of it.

o NEW: I keep saying that the measure of a country's greatness should be measured by how it treats it's elderly, frail, handicapped etc. I will add to that and say how it treats it allies
