A Kleen classic at the Disclosure:
In 1895, famed educator and author Booker T. Washington cajoled members of his community to “cast down your bucket where you are” instead of seeking labor or employment somewhere else. Likewise, I firmly believe that more can be accomplished for the benefit of our community by casting our talents and our dollars where we live by buying and producing locally, as well as abandoning the “there’s nothing I can do” attitude.
The real problem is not a lack of business or services, the problem is the complainers who, when it comes down to it, do nothing to prevent businesses from leaving and whose solution to the problems they see is to uproot and leave, or spend their dollars elsewhere, convinced that nothing can be done. For a community to be successful all the members of that community need to act together to bring the kind of entertainment, businesses, and recreation they want to see, as well as support those places already in existence.
This long-awaited paperback edition of Michael Kleen’s One Voice contains fresh, compelling content from over three years of columns and editorials devoted to the problems and issues that plague society today.
We all love freedom, but what does that word mean for the average American? Should we put our faith in the government to define who we are and how we live our lives? Michael Kleen says, “No!” Only by returning to our roots and embracing the time-tested values of hard work and self denial can we avert disaster.
When corporate power and government colludes, we the people lose out. How can we take responsibility for our own lives and tune out the garbage in the mainstream media?
