“A panicked billionaire’s latest sophomoric attempt to decorate an unpalatable business model grounded in the abuse of human rights with faux moral purpose to stave off regulation.”

«In more ways than one, President Trump’s worldview feels stuck in the 1980s, when President Reagan famously decried welfare queens. If he spent more time with people living in the inner cities he talks so much about, or the rural stretches of our nation where poverty is acute, he might have a better appreciation for what’s happened in the intervening decades.»

《In 1792, Madison wrote that it was the “independent” citizen who served as “the best basis of public liberty, and the strongest bulwark of public safety.” This proved true in the 20th century. For decades, the Democratic Party’s overwhelming electoral success was due in no small part to the fact that it delivered an important form of political economic freedom to the businessperson, worker, shopkeeper, and farmer. These free citizens then returned the party to power.》
