in thread The most important issue for me in elections is:

You are so correct in pointing out that "the good old times" were not always so good for a large portion of the population. But the moral climate has changed a great deal. So many things that would have shocked our grandparents right out of their seats is now commonplace, even tolerated.

      Exactly what I was meaning, lol.

      I will not get into a fight about "right" or "wrong" on this. I was just making a statement that the moral climate has changed and would be shocking to previous generations.
      It's left as an exercise to the reader to determine "right" or "wrong".

[stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
[stevieb]: The people back then (~2000) are the same people now, but with much more experience. I'm appreciative that I fell into the Perl rabbit hole.
[stevieb]: Coding circles around Python devs, showing how unit tests should be done, enabling easy access to everything, learning basic C to wrap for direct hardware access... I am thankful.
[stevieb]: I'm in an appreciative mood. Thank you fellow Monks, for all I know, and for the knowledge which I can pass on
