Letter: Recent letter to the editor deserves widespread distribution

Every now and then a letter to the editor is so well written and informative it should have widespread distribution. In the Feb. 14th Valentine's Day Forum, there is a letter at the bottom of the opinion page that in essence describes how, in this country, socialism gets along very well with capitalism and goes on to show in few words how they interact for the benefit of all.

I read the Burger King copy of The Forum so I don't know the author, but I'm going to buy my own copy to make sure I have it to remind me how his words showed the way to talk with reason to those who decry socialism as opposed to capitalism when, in fact, they work well together for the common good.

What to read next
Mike Rachow of Fargo writes, "America has had its little hissy fit with former President Donald Trump, voting him out of office in 2020, along with a lot of other Republican officeholders. Two years later, we see the results of electing a bunch of idealistic dreamers to run this country."
Dennis Kooren responds to a column about the The Supreme Court from Tribune columnist Cal Thomas in The Forum's Sept. 23rd e-edition.
Karen K. Ehrens, former coordinator for Creating a Hunger Free North Dakota and Healthy North Dakota, writes, "The initiative’s goal is to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030, so that fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases like diabetes, obesity and hypertension."
George Merkt, a digital content contributor for Students For a Conservative Voice, writes, "This week and going forward, North Dakotans should support practical and clean energy solutions that take advantage of all the state has to offer."
