That was quite a letter published in the Feb. 14, 2014, Chronicle about forming a better union. The author hit on about every socialist talking point imaginable. He even threw out a new one, at least new to me.
He says “85 people have more wealth than 3.5 billion people.” That’s probably true but its cherry picking data. I prefer hard numbers, but the left likes to deal in sweeping generalities. If he had said 1.5 billion people exist on $2 a day or less, we could agree on that.
