Bored by the soggy sleep-ins and warmed-over anarchism of Occupy Wall Street? Fed up (Fed Up!) with the presidential Race to the Bottom? Depressed by the warning signs of the next Depression?
What follows is a breezy tour through other countries (complete with a mix-up between Brazil and Venezuela, now corrected). Just as I am constantly amazed by the clueless sexism of libertarians when they pine for the days of “hot stewardesses”, I am amazed by the clueless, too-comfortable elitism of Times opinion writers.
Oh, those dirty hippies and their protests! Oh, those third-world shennanigans!
