Dear Mr. Hornberger,
You're one of my favorite writers.
In your article, "Government Bailouts and Government Schooling," which is here:
you inadvertently show that you are a victim of Government Schooling.
Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal didn’t “save free enterprise.” It rejected and abandoned free enterprise in favor of socialist and fascist principles that were emanating from the socialist Soviet Union and fascist Italy.
Tragically, fascism did not emanate from Russia and Italy. It was exported there from the U.S.
Roosevelt and his advisors were chief among those exporting fascism abroad, in a trend going back at least to Woodrow Wilson.
U.S. elites led the world throughout the 20th century in advocating fascism, creating fascist and socialist dictatorships, and giving them material as well as ideological support.
I recommend Will Grigg's essay, "Servile Nation":
Search for the phrase "two decades" and you'll go right to the start of his analysis on this issue.
A book should be written on this theme.
My own humble attempt to expose this "trade surplus":
Thanks again for your great articles.
