Thank you!

Thank you to all my twitter homies who wanted to bring to my attention that both Mr. Friedman and Mr. Hayek believed in the ‘basic income’ as what? Concern for the poor and the downtrodden? Or just a bit of self-apologetics/propaganda, for their red in tooth and claw Social Darwinism masquerading as Economics/Science, in the war against the Keynesians and that old Devil Marx ? Isn’t it flabbergasting even in the face of the Soviet’s murderous State Capitalism/Marxism, that Marx should still be a potent voice in our ‘debates’ or rather our trading in polemics. Or that that notorious queer, according to Mr. Ferguson, Keynes should still have the power to animate our conversations.
Best regards to all,
StephenKMackSD, aka Almost Marx

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
