monday public service announcement

You've probably heard about this: Nick Hanauer, who describes himself as a "super-rich" entrepreneur, gave a TED talk about taxing the rich. For some reason, TED deemed it too "controversial" for release. Naturally, once the Internet heard about this, then the video was lobbied for and released. Now you can watch it here, among other places.

It'd be nice if this caught on with the general public, but it's fighting an uphill battle to do so. Let's hope the message is heard during the next generation, possibly in whatever country the smartest of our children flee to.
