"Because he is a sophist and a fool, Friedman takes mild inconveniences suffered on a trip from one enclave of wealth and power to another to be proof of national decline and his prescription is based primarily on clapping really hard for Tinkerbell."

Are you really sure he out-wankers Paul Krugman and David Brooks?

Krugman exists to rationalise fake-progressive economic policy. Brooks? Waste of good space.

But they can construct a lucid policy argument for flawed postions.

Friedman? "Clap for Tinkerbele" nails it.

See, this is how I know you're too far down the rabbit hole. No one pays any attention to Krugman. If propaganda is disseminated and there's no one there, is it still propaganda?
