Senator Ben Sasse's: THEM - a Book Review
(Nebraska, Republican Senator) Ben Sasse’s : THEM: Why We Hate Each Other – and How to Heal , is both interesting, and very frustrating. His world and my world are very, very different. He is well-read and ably quotes a lot of intelligent people in supporting his conclusions. Seemingly, he is open to “the other side”, but I remain unconvinced.
I would think that with all of Senator Sasse’s abilities to research solutions to problems, he might look at the healthcare plans of the other first world countries. They all have national plans. He clearly prefers competitive capitalistic models, rather than the more socialist single payer alternative.
He says that it is important that we get away from our cell phones, and build ties others in our local communities.
