Letter to Popular Mechanics on Koch Bros. article

Dear Editor,

Popular Mechanics is to be praised for a great article about Koch Industries.

You open with a declaration of the Koch’s views as extreme and then go on to describe a company that embodies what I perceive as the core philosophy of Popular Mechanics. They make useful things. They enrich the lives of their customers. They utilize waste, reducing pollution for efficiency’s sake, not just at bureaucratic edict.

Their views are extreme only in the sense that they recognize the political world around them has gone crazy and is the biggest thorn in the side of innovators and doers. Their lobbying undoubtedly enriches their business through cronyism, but much of it goes to unshackle small business from overzealous regulators.

Love, Fritz Groszkruger
