Flattening the world, one idiot at a time
Matt Taibi on NY Times columnist (and author of "The World is Flat") Thomas Friedman:
Friedman is an important American. He is the perfect symbol of our culture of emboldened stupidity. Like George Bush, he's in the reality-making business. In the new flat world, argument is no longer a two-way street for people like the president and the country's most important columnist. You no longer have to worry about actually convincing anyone; the process ends when you make the case.Taibi read Friedman's book so you don't have to, and after reading Taibi's review, you certainly won't want to.
