"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
"Hey, let's create a fictional attack by extraterrestrial aliens and that will being all humanity together forever, and we'll solve all our problems, because we drove off the fictional aliens."Is that the gist?
Krugman's big problem - surprising (or maybe not) in an economist - is that he thinks a dollar spent by the government on anything, however pointless, is more useful than a dollar spent (or - God forbid! - saved) in the private sector.
Two points here. First, any alien invasion (even a hypothetical one) will involve hostilities, which means shooting, which requires prodigious quantities of firearms and ammo, and lefties loathe boom sticks, and all things associated with them. So it's a bust from a lack of support from his side of the aisle.Second, in an earlier post, I noted that there's nothing wrong in using hooch to speed up the synapses. But there's a trick to that, and one that Krugman has yet to master: you need to know when to stop drinking.
