To The Financial Times editors :
Your unstinting advocacy of the Neo-Liberal swindle, from The Iron Lady & Reagan to the dismal present of Macri & Macron, and its ignominious collapse and consequent immiseration of the 99%, again announces the watershed of the catastrophic nature of that economic romanticism ! More hand-wringing about The Rebellion Against the Elites, rhetorically transmogrified into the latest iteration of FT Speak as the Populist Menace!
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.'
