146 Open letter to DCCC fundraising
Free flow of information is vital to market efficiency, especially in politics. Paid advertising is noise in the system.
I am a retiree who cannot spend money on implementing my ideals. I contribute as a writer who educates the public.
That said, I cannot help commenting on your fundraising campaign.
Go back to my first paragraph with this conundrum in mind. Do you see why education is morally superior to money?
- You accuse the Republicans of trying to buy the House and the Presidency.
- You ask for money so that you can buy the House and the Presidency.
Perhaps it was in the movie Ben Hur that the line occurs: How do you fight an idea? With a better idea. [not with more money]
Now if we ask for more money for pre-K through postdoctoral education, I can be more enthusiastic. An educated electorate will not fall for the misconceptions you are trying to neutralize.
