ideas that are different

This week we watched a Netflix documentary which was thoughtful and worth viewing if you haven't seen it. There are many ideas on what's gone wrong in our country-- Noam Chomsky has his own and suggests 10 principles for how we got to where we are. I wrote about it for my other blog along with some links to other talks he has given on YouTube.

If we could avoid labels and just look at ideas, I think we'd come out ahead. I know I'd not agree with Chomsky on everything but some of what he said resonated with me. One of the problems I feel we have as a culture is an unwillingness to listen to ideas with which we disagree. Check this out and come back to tell me why it's right or wrong.
