in soviet russia, drudge report reads youI've always wondered what it would have been like to live under Stalin or Mao, and to have millions of people starving to death while the newspapers and wall posters cheerfully announced bumper crops and new state triumphs in planning and production. While the scale is surely not the same, I take delight in every headline announcing that the surge is working, the U.S. has turned the corner in Iraq, and the economy is on the verge of a massive rebound. Turns out you don't actually need state-owned media to produce a massively unreal information climate. Iran's small boats are a big problem!
I wish only to be a Stakhanovite for the new freedom and prosperity.
