New yet old


There are those who believe our current problems
have never been faced before, yet some are older
than these people might think.

While reading “The Note Book Of Elbert Hubbard”,
published in 1927, I came upon the following:

Business aims to render life safe and secure. To
supervise wisely the corporations is well; but to
look backward to the days when business was polite
pillage and regard our great business concerns as
piratical institutions carrying letters of marque
and reprisal is a grave error, born in the minds of
little men. When these little men legislate they
set the brakes going up hill.

It would seem Obama’s rants about evil corporations
has been addressed before.
Comments are always welcome.

    I love the reference to “little men.”

    Grumpa Joe,
    as do I. Those two words are why I shared the quote.
