Excellent point. I didn’t really have the space to dive into the L.A. Times’ assertions about that subject, but I wouldn’t be surprised if an in-depth look at the issue proved your conclusions correct. I think a lot of our problems can be traced back to the behind-the-curtains stuff that goes on outside of the public’s view, like wage manipulation and other shady behaviors, which is one of the reasons why I wish both sides would focus more on facts and less on politics.

Outer space enthusiast. Japanese history junkie. I write about politics, culture, and mental illness. Disagreement is a precursor to progress.
