- Let's Pretend...
Here is an excellent post plucked form the swirling miasma of paranoia and fatalism that is Zerohedge.
I actually can't think of two better words to describe the Democrat world view.
Let's pretend that windmills are new technology. Let's pretend that solar panels are as cheap and useful as internal combustion. Let's pretend that we can get by without gasoline, or that we can prevent drilling without driving up prices. Let's pretend the zero interest rate environment will continue forever.
Let's pretend that paying people to do nothing is a good use of funds. Let's pretend that racism is the 'root cause' of all of society's ills. Let's pretend that class struggle is a component of EVERYTHING. Let's pretend that a politician knows as much about investment as professional investors, and that politics is a better way to allocate resources than a free market.
Let's pretend that women can't afford birth control and that sacrificing religious liberty won't have any downstream consequences. Let's pretend that 'gun free school zones' encourage peaceful discourse in spite of all the evidence to the contrary....
It can go on and on and on and on.
