The Long Con November 3, 2012

The Baffler has a thorough examination of the convergence of political and economic naiveté here,  It documents the sad summation my gut feeling, historical narratives (I’m talking really ancient history, like Roman and Greek rabble-rousing) and years of political observation and then answers the burning question of our political age, ”How did things get so messed up?”

A longish read, but worth the effort.  If you have wondered why presidential aspirants lie so much, it’s because the groundwork for it has been carefully laid over many years.  Read about how it was done.
