As we know from Allstate commercials, America is pushing back from the table of glut and reaching deep inside ourselves to see who we really are. So who are we? How do we find ourselves? My guess is not from a guy peddling sappy Depression stories and car insurance.
Here’s a thought: maybe we need to look at where we came from, to truly see where we are now. Ding ding ding.
Newsweek had the same idea when they published a list of the Fifty Books to Read Right Now. Graphic novels, science fiction, accounts of history not found in the history books, even a biography on God. And to headline them all, a satirical comedy 135 years old to tell us who we are… now.
So for those that want to ground themselves in why we’ve come to the place that we are, forget about saving 15% or more in 15 minutes and go to the source.
