Daily Thoughts 04/06/2018

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this afternoon.

I finished reading The Common Good by Robert B. Reich today.  The last part was on civic virtue and civic education for young people.  People need to understand their government better.  This book is quite liberal.  It argues against  corruption and has a strong anti Donald Trump message.

I read some more of Enlightenment Now.  I am reading about how there are more equal rights for women, minorities, and homosexuals in most places in the world.  There is a trend towards greater equality with each generation.
