David Simon Drops A Serious Dose Of TRUTH

February 1, 2014 | 1 Comment » | Topics: TRUTH

I found an insanely interesting interview that Bill Moyer conducted with David Simon, the mastermind behind, what is widely regarded as the greatest show ever aired on television, The Wire. If you have 20 minutes to spare and want to be enlightened by the penetrating insight that David Simon offers up on the the growing income disparity, the demise of the middle class, corruption and the rigged nature of government, healthcare, the underclass, the drug trade and the paradox of building a society on the basis of individual gain, check this video out. Props to David Simon for not putting on airs, and speaking very plainly about these concepts, which makes it easy for everyone to understand. And this understanding is fundamental to our collective well being. It’s economics and political science for the people as it should be. Every person in America should watch this interview. What are your thoughts on this video?
