Can someone explain Naomi Klein to me? previousCannabis HysterianextHappens To Me Too 3 thoughts on “Timmy Elsewhere” Bob B February 3, 2008 at 11:55 am Yes. Naomi Klein is employed by a succession of academic institutions to write articles so that undergrads have useful targets for writing tutorial essays. This is a competitive process. The student who uncovers and successfully rebuts the most fallacies wins. MikinAppalachia February 3, 2008 at 3:44 pm Bob B has a reasonable explanation. I always assumed that her efforts were just political tripe colored with some buzz-words she’d heard elsewhere. BlacquesJacquesShellacques February 3, 2008 at 11:30 pm I believe she is another conservative Canadian business person who cleverly supplies what people want. Simple supply and demand. To paraphrase the quote that startled you, even in the intelligent United States, most people are stupider than the average person. Stupid people are often leftist, perhaps always leftist, so there is a huge market for leftist tracts, books, films etc. etc. Someone has to meet this demand, said Naomi, might as well be me. Perhaps she is laughing all the way to the bank. Damn, I wish I had thought of it. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
