This week's column is an updated reprint of a piece I wrote a couple of years ago when the backlash against "Obamacare" first inspired Republicans to talk about "repeal and replace". Since they are still talking and since the Dems are now also talking about health care alternatives - especially federal takeover of all health care - the topic remains open for new ideas....Read Full Post »

The U.S. military has a lot of guns, but not a lot of non-combat fatalities. Why is this? Because of common sense military regulations. That’s why, like many other military veterans, I view America’s civilian gun culture as dysfunctional.
Today, Americans mourn yet another tragic mass shooting, this one in a Texas high school. It has been a mere three months since 17 teens lost their lives at Marjory Ston...Read Full Post »

There has been a strain of missionary zeal in American foreign policy since the colonial days and it raises its head every once in a while even today. Perhaps it is the shadow of our Puritan heritage . On the one hand, the moral dilemma of slavery has poisoned our national conscien...Read Full Post »

OAKLAND, CA.- The (LPGA) Ladies Professional Golf Association came out swinging this week as Hank Haney professional caddy and golf trainer tried to disparage a number of Korean golfers. Korean-American professional golfer Michelle Wie would have none of it and challenged Haney. This man still has not learned the lesson that we are a multi- cultured country with many different ethnicities that make this nation great. Once again we stumble on the racia...Read Full Post »

Washington, D.C., apparently is the capital of the Gentrification Nation too.
Want to see the effects? Just take a stroll through the environs near Howard University’s main campus these days and you reflexively say, “My, how times have changed.”

Haney apologized last week but now seems hollow and meaningless after his renewed attack and rant Monday morning.

"To whom much is given, much is expected."
by Dr. Larry Fedewa (June 1, 2019)
Last week we discussed the antecedents of the current movement toward corporate social responsibility and the Conscious Capitalist movement and also the paradigm on which a moral claim can be made for a re-definition of "workers' rights" with respect to workers' share of the company's profits.
The paradigm is the company's products an...Read Full Post »

Updating workers' rights
By Dr. Larry Fedewa (May 25, 2019)
Until now, we have been exploring the case for Conscious Capitalism on the basis of economic necessity. It is clear that the strength (68%) of America's economy is based on consumer demand. Most of the consumer purchases in America are bought by the families of...Read Full Post »
