I certainly don’t agree with everything in this article, and the writer needs a decent editor, but it’s an interesting read. The Politics of Ingratitude.

Here’s the meat.

What our parents gave us as a gift we have received as an entitlement. No one is not grateful for an entitlement.

    “No one is not grateful for an entitlement”? Is there an extra “not” in there?

  2. Greg Krehbiel:

    I said he needed an editor, didn’t I?

  3. pentamom:

    Yeah, but without reading the article, it was impossible to tell whether he was making a really provocative counter-intuitive point, or just couldn’t control his negatives. ;-)

    I’m not quite sure he really understands Keynes either.

    But I do agree with much of what he says. How many of the people calling for free market capitalism would really like it if they got it? Very, very few, I’ll bet.
