The holidays are upon us, along with the annual offerings of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." We will hear of the soulless miser, Scrooge, and his employee Bob Cratchit, who is forced to work on Christmas while earning so little he cannot afford a goose for dinner let alone medical care for his disabled son, Tiny Tim.
We will be smugly certain that we are morally superior to Scrooge. Are we really?
In the modern day, we vote with our dollars more often than we vote in the polling booth. We are voting for the products we buy and the performances of the vendors who peddle them.
