They sow not, neither do they reap

Wretchard: “It’s almost as if there were two parallel universes. The real one in which the rest of the world lives and the fantasy land bounded by the Beltway and the media capitals.” Don’t forget the universities too. The closer you get to these tenured or semi-tenured worlds the further from reality you get. After all, you’re living off the productivity of others, in a world where income and performance often bear no relation to each other. WRM: the government needs “to make foreign policy for the country they’ve got, rather than making foreign policy for a hypothetical country that exists only in their hopes.” They sow not, neither do they reap; but ah, how they dream.

    The Narrative = The Lie

    Some of the tenets of The Narrative are “deficits don’t matter”, “random violence” is caused because people don’t have jobs, and the unlimited import of unskilled labor into a depressed economy is a good thing. But The Narrative seems to be working for now as it is keeping our ruling masters on top.

    However, the math doesn’t lie and reality will win in the end.
