“I just just believe that an economy in which people own the means of production and the stuff they produce would be one that’d be a good bit better than the one we have now. What if that $5 billion worth of worth just went back to the workers at Chick-Fil-A because they own the company? Why don’t they deserve instead of some guys whose dad started the company?”
I know, I know, I just linked to Thornton a while ago, but gah, he's writing some really amazing things. As a person who was heavily involved in the evangelical church who walked away for many of the reasons he talks about in this piece, I'm intrigued. Finding someone who is in the church but not what you see in the media can be hard and I'm immensely glad that there is someone like Thornton saying the things he's saying.
