Reply To: Rachel Maddow's Blind Deference to Government Power


Oh wow; speak of the rob’t debil, even a blind pig like the NYT can stumble across an acorn from time to time and notice that the regulatory-raj state protects entrenched interests at the expense of competitors.

Of course, the NYT as an institutional whole will learn nothing from it’s own articles on this subject because, as the beacon of entrenched interests, as indeed an intrenched interest itself, it will not want to. But some articles from a ‘reputable’ source to throw at your “government tax policy and regulations protect us from entrenched interest and are our only hope against the inequalities promoted by capitalism” friends.
