Why Don’t Americans Trust Each Other Anymore? # 91

These are points of view I have collected to share with my grandchildren as I believe it will help them to be happier and more successful in their lives. I have decided to also show them publicly as perhaps there are others who would like also to share some of these points with others. I hope that will happen. It is this philosopher’s desire that you will react differently to each item by laughing, stopping to think, analyzing, retelling, questioning yourself, but most importantly that you will listen more intently to the ideas,

concepts, and opinions of others. If you can learn to do that, it will be easier for you to understand that we all are as often wrong as we are right. When I know where an item in this collection came from I will identify the source. But under all circumstances, I do not claim that anything I have included is some pure original thought of my own. I ascribe to the belief there is nothing new in the universe, but if I am wrong about that, and a new thought was produced, it was certainly not produced by me.
