“Indulgence”

29 03 2010

Jon Chait deals with Robert Samuelson.

Obviously, all of this is dressed up in the policy (or maybe just political) mumbo-jumbo of the professional opinion set, but at its heart is a sentiment that holds that those less fortunate ought really just to fuck off and die.  It’ll never be openly discussed in those terms, of course, because whereas telling millions upon millions of your fellow citizens to fuck off and die is the brave act of a Very Serious Person, explaining in clear terms what’s actually being proposed is a terrible breach of Village decorum.
