It's worth thinking about the many reasons Krugman has for endlessly, obsessively demonizing and castigating the rich:a) The need for denial that he is himself a cosseted beneficiary of the economics of U.S. society rather than the savior of ordinary people. To a comfy senior academic/journalistic celebrity testifying to one's own virtue is a ceaseless obligation.b) As a child of New York's first generation immigrant lower middle class, to confirm that success(economic as well as academic and celebrity intellectual) has not eroded his original social and political identity.c) Catering to the similar needs of the Times' editors, editorial board and readers in order to maintain his role in the Times.d) Lack of any concept whatever as to how to constructively and sustainable reduce the plight of the underclass in the U.S.e) Intellectual exhaustion.The babble continues.
I'm not surprised. Bought and paid for in the halls of Congress.Another generation of this and we'll all be serfs.
An excellent idea. A nice privately-funded college catering exclusively to members of the transgender community, on a couple of acres in rural upstate New York, some ivy-covered buildings, a large dormitory, non-gender-specific bathrooms, a cafeteria, a medical clinic, computer lab, job training....Nice, safe, secure, non-controversial. Sounds like a perfect solution to me.
