We’re too broke to be this stupid

Back in 2008, when I was fulminating against multiculturalism on a more or less weekly basis, a reader wrote to advise me to lighten up, on the grounds that “we’re rich enough to afford to be stupid.”

Two years later, we’re a lot less rich. In fact, many Western nations are, in any objective sense, insolvent. Hence last week’s column, on the EU’s decision to toss a trillion dollars into the great sucking maw of Greece’s public-sector kleptocracy. It no longer matters whether you’re intellectually in favour of European-style social democracy: simply as a practical matter, it’s unaffordable.

He’s Intentionally Destroying the Economy

You’ve heard me say that line before if you know me or read this blog.  It begs the question “Why?”.

I never knew until today.  Read this short piece on The Cloward-Piven Strategy for a scary ‘a-ha’ moment.
