Re: Values Added: Occupy, Inc. (David Roberts & Julian Sanchez)

Bravo David! Democratic institutions and procedures have been neutralized by the simple facts of the consolidation of public and private power...and the demos is getting really pissed about it. The...

Re: Values Added: Winter Is Coming (Michelle Goldberg & Conn Carroll)

michelle is very good here. And though I agree "self-expression" has fragmented progressives and liberals it will nonetheless remain the project of "the left" to recognize that legacy and still find...

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

Perhaps a concerned citizen like yourself can help OWS get the DOJ off its ass to start leveling indictments against GOldman, Merrill, et al, and have it play out in court so we'd all have a better...

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

Quite a few, STD, from the point of the view of those who are of the left of Obama. Do your research.

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

But the important and big difference is that the Tea Party sanctifies the absolute right of private property, i.e., the capital of plutocrats and the withering away of the New Deal, while populists...

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

I've attended the protests in NYC. There's little if any noise being made on the ground about 2012, not even about "turnout." Yes, probably more in the MSM I'm sure, and even more on its way once it...

Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)

thank you bhtv for an intelligent and fair analysis of OWS. But I have to disagree with Posner's remark (and Weigel's audible nod) that the protestors concede "failure" by the Democratic Party. They...

Re: Darwinism and Libertarianism (Matt Welch & Robert Frank)

Despite their occasional Social-Darwinian pretensions, ("rhetoric" as Frank rightly calls it,) libertarians believe in the smooth functioning of markets, and thus in social order. They are petty...

Re: Economizing (Suzy Khimm & Megan McArdle)

Re: Economizing (Suzy Khimm & Megan McArdle)

AemJeff:

How so? Harkin conflated Tea Party shenanigans with OWS without providing support (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/29/opinion/29rich.html?pagewanted=all) to do so. His silence is...

Re: Economizing (Suzy Khimm & Megan McArdle)

Harkin:

The article I link to makes a momentary, tangential reference to the Tea Party. Do you have a point to make or are you just goobering for attention?

Re: Economizing (Suzy Khimm & Megan McArdle)

"Its not fair?" really? well, who better than Mcsuderman to give a thoughtful and fair analysis of OWS? "I'm basically an economic determinist" = I have an MBA and I like disparaging hippies so I'll...

Re: Worldwise: Addicted to Fudge (Henry Farrell & Alex Massie)

Re: Science Saturday: Xenopsychology 101 (Daniel Foster & Jacob Haqq-Misra)
