#276: Denial Is The Heartbeat Of America

The Highlighter
Hi loyal readers, and thank you very much for being here. All four articles this week are outstanding and worthy of your time and attention. In this week’s lead article, Ibram X. Kendi urges us to sit with the truth of our country and its history, rather than clinging to mythical narratives of exceptionalism and inevitable progress. The second piece — about the last two northern white rhinos on Earth — makes time stop and will likely make you cry. Then, after a cat break, you’ll find two more great articles, one that further reveals the inequities of capitalism and the other that further reveals the limitations of government regulation. Please enjoy!
+ If you have a moment: Hit reply, say hi, and let me know which article you appreciated most this week. Thank you!
