Regarding your essay:
Call this wise cracking merde about a serious subject! Or call it a breezy, mocking political travelogue: didn’t Milton Friedman say I can look with equanimity on the misfortunes of others? The Financial Times has done a better job of fear mongering, as the Guardians of Neo-Liberal Rationalism. And by all means don’t mention the co-conspirators, with a former Greek government to coverup the true extent of Greek debt, Goldman Sachs, like a good corporate lap dog!  Your just a pretender, an instrument of Mr. Bezos’ attempt to rescue the grey Post from it’s stodgy reactionary readership, and the predations of Katharine Weymouth.
Your style, an amalgam of Luce’s Time Magazine pablum, you recall Hank’s American Century? And the un-mourned stylistic pizazz of Helen Girley Brown, with just a touch of Arianna Huffington’s ersatz ‘Progressivism’. The rumor is that McDonalds will offer your essay as a two page coloring books, with a set of crayons, and a discount coupon from Amazon, for a week’s supply of Soma, you recall it from Huxley’s Brave New World? Mr. Bezos is nothing if not a marketing genius, comparable to Edward Bernays?
Sincerely yours,
Myra B.

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.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
