Here's the article he wrote:  https://democracyjournal.org/magazine/52/economic-dignity/

I haven't processed it (stopped when he invoked Kant, as I knew then I'd have to read it all.)

I do wonder whether he wrote the subheading, that "allowing people to lead dignified lives."

Seems a little bit undignified... but I'll reserve judgment until after I've read the whole thing.

Maybe he want to maintain unfamous "american dream" of US. But yet using "allowing" really a bad choice of vocabulary with negative overtone. This man is sadly a joke, which's not amusing at all.

As much as I would love to chime in here, I think we all know that this topic is likely to inflame partisan members on the forum and I'd ask that you reconsider discussing this subject matter further. Every other thread discussing US politics has rapidly descended into abuse pretty quickly with no gain whatsoever.

I think we've reached a unwritten consensus across the forum based on the fact that overtly political debate has faired poorly on the internet. It goes like this: you don't mention "him" and I won't mention "him" either (passing reference aside). Seems fair, no?

I will mention Trump once. Maybe twice. Trump.

Having said that. Magic p00p says this: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/ICSA/xGwLywAJ-Don-t-Miss-This-POWERFUL-Recession-Analysis-ICSA-ES/

Regardless, I'm going on a limb here and say that timing is completely out of hands of whoever sits in the White House. Is it really great for the current president to inherent a bull market that began somewhere in 2009? This is a fun chart about S&P 500 performance with regards to the administration: https://www.macrotrends.net/2482/sp500-performance-by-president
