That giant sucking sound? Son, that’s what we used to call ‘The Economist’.

Too bad.

Used to be a nice magazine. As in, “intelligent”, “well-informed”, “fairly centrist”, “not as loony as Newsweek”. I’ve bought it a few times, and subscribed for a while.

Seems to have turned into just another in a long line of “Big Government is Good For You” media shills.  Soon lining a bird-cage near you!

Statism. It even sounds ugly, and the meaning is uglier:

stat-ism [stey-tiz-uh m] –
1. the principle or policy of concentrating extensive economic, political, and related controls in the state at the cost of individual liberty.

Because that’s always worked so well before!

I’ve got a crazy idea. How about another magazine that advocates for—hold on, this is pretty revolutionary—more individual liberty!

Not less Liberty. More Liberty. M-O-R-E.

More Liberty, both economic and personal.

Free markets and free people. I’ve heard it works pretty well.
