Friday Quote

The more we earn, the more we control. Money buys beyond necessities and luxuries; our dollars can influence politics and negotiate our way through tax laws or legal difficulties. Money buys services, security, and healthcare. When money can buy such influence, the fundamental ideal of democracy – that all voices have equal value and effect – becomes an unachievable myth.

-Radical Simplicity by Jim Merkel
