Yes, Exactly

A Chinese friend of mine who had been active in the democracy movement explained…"Before Tianenmen, we believed that freedom is 90 percent political and 10 percent economic. A few years later, we came to realize that freedom is 90 percent economic and 10 percent political." You may find my friend\’s change of heart troublesome, but think about your own daily life and then try to tell me that second formula isn\’t a better description of how things really work for the vast majority of Americans.

    The problem is that the 90 percent economic does not remain free for long unless the 10 percent political is brought under control.

    Britain has vastly more than 10 percent political freedom and yet we can’t get the bastards back under control.
