All Within the State, Nothing Outside the State
Now is the time at Ed Driscoll.com when we juxtapose, Small Dead Animals-style:
In Matt’s universe, your business? Your life? You didn’t build that. Your property? You didn’t own that. Ever. Matt’s credibility as a “real journalist”? He didn’t earn that.
Of course, as we mentioned back in 2010, when Yglesias admitted he was OK with lying; there are far more prominent examples "real journalists" who've admitted the same thing. On the other hand, I'll take Matt at his word that he believes what he said today. And as Kate of Small Dead Animals tweets in response today, "Hey, @mattyglesias -- where do you live? I'd like to check over your furniture and see if there's anything I like."
