Here’s a breaking story, published in The Hill. But most non-Americans will argue that the US mass shootings are a function of gun control and mental health. But the mental health challenges are probably a function of modern American socialogy – increasing wealth of the minority, failing healthcare, fewer jobs because of technology and offshoring and escalating addiction, especially opioids. What ever happened to the ‘American Dream?’ Thoughts?

Labour is dreaming if it believes Britain wants socialism – The Guardian
Here’s a thoughtful article from the Guardian which is worth a read. The article argues that Britain’s property-owning older investors want to preserve the status quo and don’t trust Labour’s promise of growth in the public sector. Respectfully, the article misses the point. The battlefield will be for the votes of those likely to inherit from their parents and grandparents. Conservative strategists will promote fear, arguing that a Far Left Labour government will be revolutionary, seeking to steal the wealth of ordinary people and their right to pass it to their children and grandchildren. The battle lines will be over inherited wealth. But evidence is powerful too – despite much promise, socialism has failed to delivery to the majority – it has pandered to its own privileged classes and elites. Thoughts?
