1) The public square of today is online. If that’s controlled by people who have radical positions and are willing to manipulate and exploit people, then that’s a dangerous and peculiar position for the population.
2) Wealth divides the real issue. We’ve got to figure out ways for people to participate in wealth creation for themselves.
3) Right now, you can’t get in. It’s not about people conspiring against other people getting in, it’s because the system has too many hands involved.
