The cynic in me wants to call Robert Heinlein a sucker for Our Noble, Essential Decency, an essay written and recorded for This I Believe in the 1950s...but I know that Heinlein was no sucker. I'd like to believe in the decency of the majority of humankind. I don't, but I'd like to. Go read the essay or click play on the player below to listen to Heinlein read it.
Thanks for the heads-up, Andrew.
