The study of history teaches us to make evidenced-based arguments. Unfortunately, in today’s culture, people do not seem to have a problem with making bold statements in public speeches and interviews that are not backed up by evidence. Does evidence matter any more? We need history more than ever.
Just as an aside, I am continually amazed at how influential Bernie Sanders has been in this election. When was the last time a POTUS candidate (especially a GOP candidate) tried to separate himself or herself from Wall Street money.
