Other People Are Humans

“Democracy is built upon respect and concern, and these in turn are built upon the ability to see other people as human beings, not simply as objects.”
~ Martha C. Nussbaum, Martha C. Nussbaum, ‘Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities’

      Good to see you USFman. Are you back from your trip?

      • usfman

        We are back from India and are continuing our roadtrip from Morro Day, Calif. until early June.
        I have seen so much to blog about India that it preoccupies my mind now.

      • JoAnn Chateau

        I’m looking forward to those India posts. 🙂

    Well said, Martha C. Nussbaum! Capitalism and democracy are not compatible bedfellows.

    this society is moving
    in the opposite direction
