Happy Fourth of July.
It’s not about hamburgers, hot dogs, crepe paper and parties, nice though those are. Nor is it about politicians throwing candy to kids — though that figured in one of the recent July 4th parades I went to.
It’s about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — and a nation created out of the idea that individuals should be free to choose. Take a moment, and on youtube search for Milton Friedman and Free to Choose… pick whatever theme suits your fancy, invite your neighbors to watch. Not for the sake of nostalgia, but because there are ideas here that need desperately to be revived.
