Dr. Mabuse gets published.

Too long to post the whole thing. My father forwarded this to me. Pretty good piece, which makes me hate to ascribe it to Dr. Mabuse, but if you have read his posts, this is eerily similar to his dribble.

http://spectator.org/archives/2010/0...-class-and-the

As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations, and opinion leaders stretching from the National Review magazine (and the Wall Street Journal) on the right to the Nation magazine on the left, agreed that spending some $700 billion to buy the investors' "toxic assets" was the only alternative to the U.S. economy's "systemic collapse." In this, President George W. Bush and his would-be Republican successor John McCain agreed with the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama. Many, if not most, people around them also agreed upon the eventual commitment of some 10 trillion nonexistent dollars in ways unprecedented in America. They explained neither the difference between the assets' nominal and real values, nor precisely why letting the market find the latter would collapse America. The public objected immediately, by margins of three or four to one.
Many more pages and many more words per page at the link. Pretty interesting piece.

I don't think he wrote that. It's not center-justified.

Good article. We--the people who actually work for a living--won't get anywhere by voting.

I thought it would be a book of irrelevant quotes.

Wait, nothing about our misperceptions about hemp, union labor, peak oil, and religion being the result of extensive "social conditioning"?

That article doesn't have nearly enough icons in it to belong to the good doctor.

Re: Dr. Mabuse gets published.

You guys obviously do not know me very well, since there are so many other faults you could have mentioned.

That's right... I just went all Epictetus on you bastards!
