« Media Mislead About Autoworkers' Salaries, Largely Ignore Executive Pay | Main | Gates (Unofficially) Agrees to Stay at Pentagon: Enough with the Speculations and Leaks, Already! »

November 26, 2008



When I was in school I could never understand why, after a successful major revolution (French Revolution, Russian Revolution), the revolutionaries felt it necessary to execute so many people. Even after the American Revolution, tens of thousands of Tories were forced to flee for their lives. Why, I wondered, did the revolutionaries have to be so blood-thirsty--after all they had won?

Now, after witnessing what has happened over the last eight years--and in the face of this financial crisis in particular--I understand. I still don't like what was done, but I understand why it happened.
