In my 2015 book release, The Way Things Oughta Be, I offer numerous chapters with analyses and suggestions for improving the world, whether it be politics, science, education, criminal justice, family issues, love and romance and so much more. At the very end of the book, I present a chapter titled, “Afterthoughts” which is a list of one-liners, without essay or analysis.
I thought some folks might be interested…so I extracted this chapter and created a short blog. (With the author’s permission, of course) See what you think.
Sometimes, a simple answer can identify a question. According to your author, here are a few one-line reflections on – The Way Things Oughta Be:
- Smart people should think twice about the long-range consequences before blanketing their bodies with tattoo ink.
- Parents who sit with their kids at restaurant tables engrossed with tablets and smart phones tell me they’ve lost the ability to communicate.
- I’m a fan of space travel, but I also wonder if the enormous costs outweigh the benefits, and those billions of dollars could not be better funneled to more pressing needs.
- Abolish car alarms. They are useless costs added to the price of an auto.
