What a surprising and disappointing article—rant—from Paul Craig Roberts, one of my heroes! Why did he write it? And then, after re-reading it (he did re-read it, didn’t he?), why did he press the “send” button?
As writers, authors, journalists, commentators, bloggers—whatever we call ourselves—the single most precious thing we have to protect is our attitude. PCR sounds like he’s read too much bad news and is beginning to believe it! How useful is that? For those of us engaged in the freedom fight—I’ve been in it since 1967—the last thing we need is someone of the stature and credibility of Roberts to come along and tell us that it’s all over, that there’s no reason to continue to fight, that it’s useless, just to roll over and let it happen.
I strongly disagree, and don’t think he has served us well with this article.
