At The Financial Times: my reply to Pastaneta

@Pastaneta @Premonition

Is there nothing like the perpetual keening of the minions of Capitalist Class? With apologies to Karl Marx! The Bail Out followed by Quantitative Easing isn’t/wasn’t enough? On that question see these two essays that define the term antithetical.

AEI propagandist first

NYT hack second:

And not one prosecution of any Investment House or Bank executive, whose combined criminality was ‘put behind us’ as Obama looked to the future! Obama just another Neo-Liberal conformist, whose appointments were run of the mill, in every way. That ‘Hope and Change’ evolved into the SOS, and our present economic doldrums, if that even describes an economy made up of low paying service jobs: the realization of the ‘philosophy ‘ of the Hayek/Mises/Friedman trio, with the help of that indefatigable pamphleteer Ayn Rand. This trio plus one believed the future was about Robber Capital being the master, to the groveling Worker as slave, without the mythical possibility of the Slave’s self-emancipation through a fight to the death. A schoolmaster’s daydream! See Hegel and Kojève for the ennui inducing particulars.




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.'
