the quality of our society

if you want a society in which everyone has a decent life, you need to construct a society in which everyone has a decent life ….the quality of our society depends on what happens to everyone else.

More wise words from one of my favorite public intellectuals. (Krugman, Paul. “Down the Up Staircase.” [Blog post.] February 25, 2014, 10:25 am. The Conscience of a Liberal. http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/02/25/down-the-up-staircase/?nl=opinion&emc=edit_ty_20140225

So it’s not the economy, stupid, even though the current cost-saving cutting of public services budgets also cuts jobs. We do not live by bread alone.
