I’ve been meaning to write an essay much like Robert Wright’s Op-Ed in today’s New York Times for a few years.
Mr. Bush doesn’t grasp the liberating power of capitalism, the lethal effect of luring authoritarian regimes into the modern world of free markets and free minds.
Interventionists, in particular George Bush, talk a lot about freedom and liberty. So did the last century’s communists. Neither had or has any faith in actual freedom as their actions forcefully demonstrate. Read Wright.
While on the subject of faith I must point to the Church of Reality. “If it’s real, we believe in it!” Ah do buhleeve!
