A Good Question

A Good Question
P. Schultz
June 29, 2013

         Here is a really good question, posed by the son of a Mafioso, but still a really good question. It reminded me of when I use to have students read The Autobiography of Malcolm X and would ask them, “Why was Malcolm considered more dangerous by the government after he had reformed, got clean, stopped committing crimes, and had become a Black Muslim than when he was a small time burglar, pimp, and drug dealer?”  

“Which is more dangerous? A gangster or a government that does anything it wants?”
