I am also rather shocked that this is only the second thread explicitly calling him out, and the first where he is the primary target of ire.
WillFarnaby, you made a statement earlier today which I couldn’t really respond to outside of the pit - by design, it seems:
And while I responded to the rest of that deluded, misguided rant in that thread, allow me to respond to this part here, where I can do it justice.
You, sir, have no fucking integrity. You are a random internet commentator with a hardline libertarian streak that extends so far as to call the government’s investment in the internet (which I recommend you get off of) a disaster on par with smallpox, who is almost never right about anything. You can’t even answer a straight question without changing the subject and getting three things wrong in two sentences. And then you have the balls to take shots at Paul Krugman for “political hackery” and “abdication of integrity”?
Your libertarian ideology has utterly and completely blinded you to things like empathy, basic economics, and the ability to answer an honest fucking question. You deserve to be taken as seriously as someone like D’Anconia or OMGaBC - an ideologically blinkered tool with little regards to issues of fact if they don’t fit into your worldview, with a massively inflated ego, to the degree that you think a world-class economist speaking on his subject of expertise is worth far less than your word as an anonymous douchebag on a message board!
The sooner you stop spreading ignorance the easier a job the rest of us will have it.
