…when businesspeople take credit for creating jobs, it’s a little like squirrels taking credit for creating evolution. In fact, it’s the other way around

Nick Hanauer, from a presentation TED won’t show (via zeitvox)

CTG: I’m shocked by TED on this one. Their bi-partisan argument is as flimsy as a wet noodle. 

I have been reading Roger Ebert’s reviews, essays, and overall work since I was 16 years old. Outside of being a terrific film critic and historian, he is also an extremely intelligent and thoughtful human being. Kudos to Roger for his positive attitude in the face of all the adversity he has encountered. This TED speech serves as a reminder of the importance of having a voice, and I don’t just mean a physical one.
