Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This quote is taken from an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on December 17. Johan Norberg is a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute.
“…we’ve lived through a period of populist revolts and geopolitical tensions, and wherever societies have been open and markets free, scientists, innovators and businesses persisted and made greater progress than ever.
That’s the case for optimism. Tin-pot strongmen, looting politicians and punctilious bureaucrats make mischief with societies and economies. But mankind creates faster than they can squander, and repairs more than they can destroy.”
So we should head into 2020 with a positive attitude and the conviction that we can handle whatever life throws at us. Accompanied all the way by our Ricochet friends.
