An Old Lefty Passes On...

John Kenneth Galbraith taught at Harvard University from 1948 until his retirement in 1975, but continued to publish books on socio-economic issues.

An advocate of government action to solve social problems, he focused on issues such as the distribution of wealth in society.

He was awarded the Medal of Freedom twice, by President Truman in 1946 and President Clinton in 2000.
A liberals wet dream, Galbraith was a longtime standard bearer of the Democratic party line which believes that minorities are inferior creatures who need all the special help they can get. It was his proficiency in spreading this new approach to racism that helped liberals in their quest to destroy the black American family, and assure a captive-audience constituency that found itself with nowhere to turn BUT government assistance for virtually every aspect of their modern-day slavelike existence.

Other than that, he was a decent guy.
