American Values

Senator Byron Dorgan, the junior senator from North Dakota, has written a book. It is entitled "Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out America." In it he writes
I feel strongly that some important American values are being sacrificed in order to find the lowest-priced gallon of mustard or twelve-pack of underwear.

The role of government is to help create a society beneficial to people. People are the priority. Not corporations. Certainly commerce plays a huge role in the betterment of any great society, but any society that forgets that its primary purpose is to serve the people cannot ever be great.

We are engaged in more than an academic debate over philosophy. I believe this to be a contest for the soul of a great nation, with immense ramifications for the entire world. It is about values.
People, not corporations. What a novel concept!
