Would You Hide a Jew From the Nazis? – The New York Times

Nick Kristof reminds us that in 1938, many Americans and Europeans said the same things about Jewish refugees that Donald Trump and Marie Le Pen are saying about Syrian refugees. (They’re lying.)

In New York City (where a bomb injured 29 people last night) world leaders are meeting for two days to discuss how to deal with a global refugee crisis worse than that of WWII.

As today’s leaders gather for their summit sessions, they should remember that history eventually sides with those who help refugees, not with those who vilify them.

Inalienable: the pursuit of happiness

We pursue wealth hoping it will bring happiness. But as sad, angry rich people everywhere can tell you, that can fail (and make you feel pathetic). Old Capitalism built our world, but it brings violence and exploitation. New Capitalists believe we deserve better.

What if we pursued happiness directly, and treated money as a side effect? What if we did it both individually and as a society? That’s the central question of this blog. Whether you’re an economist, entrepreneur, activist, or just tired of systems of violence and foolishness, I’ll bet you agree it’s worth answering.
