    An excellent synopsis of Bastiat’s ‘The Law’ and Hazlett’s ‘Economics in One Lesson’. Unfortunately it is totally inaccessible to progressive thought, but perhaps it will illuminate an ‘independent’ to take a deeper look at free market capitalism.

  2. I am reminded of a chat with two Israeli (one originally Russian, the other English/South African) software engineering friends at lunch a couple decades ago. I asked them, both very left of center, where wealth came from. They were both adamant… wealth is only created when the government spends money. The idea that a farmer creates wealth when he manages to harvest a crop that is worth more than the money it took to bring in, or that when we sold a piece of equipment that more than paid the bills we paid (including to ourselves) left them with blank stares. Crickets. Didn’t sink in at all.

    One of them is now a senior executive muckymuck at Goldman Sachs. Reality doesn’t always line the pockets as effectively as a convenient fiction.

    The universal Devout Democrat response when their nonsensical notions are de-constructed is blank silence. It is caused by their egos being inflated by said notions and to deny their notions is to deny themselves.
    I wonder, do they all go to boot camp or training seminars to be identically programmed?
