- On the Debt Monster
A Brilliant Comment on the Debt Monster and the hyperbole of the left:
At the root of the attitude that has got us into this mess is a perverted conception of morality, in which spending without limit, advocating short-term gain at the expense of long-term solvency, and imposing mountainous debt on our children and grandchildren is Good, but living within our means and, you know, not precipitating the decline of our civilization is Bad. It is a morality in which intentions are the only thing that matter, and reality must bend to meet our indulgences. Never mind that we can’t afford it, do you want it? You don’t? You’re a monster.
