Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Hoo Boy

There are actually people on the left of the environmental movement who decry the use of consumer pressure to change policy?  I mean, that's an actual thing?  This is Purity Politics at its most perverse.

Right now, the purchasing power of the Liberal Coastal Elites is probably as important or more so than the rule of law as promulgated through the Courts.  It is absolutely toxic to be a business leader who embraces Trump. And it looks like consumer pressure could be the thing that takes down Bill O'Reilly.  I'm not overly concerned about HOW that happens.
