3. Yep, excellent point. Sometimes people that hold these unshakable beliefs got them by
way of mind numbing simple statements, so it does seem your approach is best. Off hand I don't have any links like that. Generally I go to the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), but as you say and I agree, it can be "too involved.....Too convoluted.." via the EPI.
I believe in fairness, equality and equal opportunity! And, live and let live!
