I commend to your attention . . .

George Monbiot, a columnist for The Guardian. Today's bon mot:

Most of these bodies [funded by the Koch brothers] call themselves "free-market thinktanks", but their trick – as (Astro)Turf Wars points out – is to conflate crony capitalism with free enterprise, and free enterprise with personal liberty. Between them they have constructed the philosophy that informs the Tea Party movement: its members mobilise for freedom, unaware that the freedom they demand is freedom for corporations to trample them into the dirt.

Monbiot's weekly columns are archived here.

well you know this is like a pool fill it with sharks, waiting for the easy prey, and when the people finally fall in this trap, the hell itself will be open.
