A Sobering Thought

“The Horror, The Horror”

by Paul Krugman
“Atrios, aka Duncan Black, is celebrating his 10th blogoversary with a countdown of America’s Worst Pundits. And he emphasizes just how bad a decade it has been, “a time when this country stopped even bothering to pretend to live up to many of its supposed ideals. We go to war and kill lots of people for no good reason, elites have eliminated any accountability for themselves for criminal wrongdoing, we’ve tortured and assassinated people, and the response to massive economic suffering and related criminal fraud has been to give lots of free money to the people who caused it all.
”Whenever people take me to task for being rude, for not treating politicians and their apologists with respect even when they’re talking obvious nonsense, I wonder whether they’ve been asleep this past decade. We have a political movement that lied us into war, not to mention all the other abuses. If this doesn’t call for being tough, what would?”
