Populist rants

Nobody knows, which is precisely why leadership everywhere is addled and uncertain how to respond. What they should most fear, however, is someone who connects together the riots in Greece several years ago, the demonstrations in Iceland, and the events throughout the Middle East, with the protests in Wisconsin, and who then draws a picture which makes sense and which everyone can understand.

Dear Tiger,

I ran into the above quote. The general theme of the story is very populist, that the problem is that the rich are manipulating the world in order to screw over the poor. (What? again???).

I think people don’t really remember just how desperate the 1930s were. My guess is we area long way from that, at least in the US.
