“Socialism for me and capitalism for thee”?

by Greg Krehbiel on 3 February 2010

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?

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

    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.
