Can't help but smile at the crude Orwellian conduct here. That they don't try harder with these shifts is indicative of what they think of their audience.

It really is something to see how needy, how status-driven these people are. The material comfort really isn't sufficient for them. If they aren't validated by their peers, they start blubbering like toddlers.

The status of people like Brooks and Friedman make me wonder how the fuck do I fail upward like that. I'm good at blowing it—it should be the primary entry on my cv—but how do I monetize it like those two flashing vcr clocks?

Why stop there, NYT? Just start writing full-on monarchist editorials while you're at it. :rolleyes:

Still, I'd rather conservatives be more open about their contempt for the hoi polloi and need to exercise power to control them than the phony populism they perform, that they're outsiders just like guys drinking a beer on their riding mower. Follow the douchehat and admit you're an elitist.

Michael Gerson tiptoes up to the line of criticizing capitalism but lacks sufficient self-awareness to carry the ball over: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... 2812a06459
