even the economist finds it hard to stomach marxist hypocrisy

jan 31st, 2007

even though they can't spell 'buddhadeb' and also are experts, in the usual atlanticist way, at talking out of both sides of their mouth.

they should also have thrown in the kerala example, where all meaningful development has been scotched by marxists. a former marxist minister, on being asked about prohibition, said, "of course we're against prohibition. without alcohol, there won't be poverty. and without poverty, who needs us?"

even more true now then when it was uttered.
