December 2020 Wisdom

 Here's my collection of accumulated wisdom from last month, at least as far as my phone camera goes. πŸ˜„

First, three things about capitalism:

The CEO of Whole Foods is one smart guy. He is spot-on about the benefits of capitalism over socialism, and also about health (he's said that Americans need to take much better care of themselves and that would reduce a lot of the stress on the healthcare and health insurance industries, not to mention on Americans themselves). Before I found out about John Mackey I wasn't so sure about Whole Foods because of its connection to Amazon and Jeff Bezos, but I feel better about shopping there now. I'm going to support this guy!

The roots of capitalism, potentially started by my GREAT (many times over) grandfather.

Good thoughts from this guy who sent his opinion in to The Wall Street Journal. I agree with him. Jesus Christ and His teachings trump capitalism (and everything else).

I thought this obituary was really sweet. Optimistic people are the best.

Personal revelation is more important than ever.
I've been on the receiving end of this lack of commitment, and it's painful. One of the most important things in life is to be committed to the things that matter most, even when it's hard and scary. 

I love this quote.
I've loved this quote for a long time too. 

Franklin Planners forever! πŸ™Œ I've relied on mine for over twenty years now--half my life!

cough*Big Tech and liberal Democrats*cough. We're on a slippery slope in the U.S.

I've been working on this, especially when trying to see the other side of issues without immediately dismissing them.
