    The Swedish Left are pitch perfect examples of what they themselves call “parlor Bolsheviks”. Norberg is right – they identify more with the revolutionaries than with the actual proletariat.

    And his note about the denigration of Llosa as “macho” is dead on the money. Man-hatred is de rigueur.Report

    Oh, wow. Spiked and Johan Norberg. Two blasts from the past in one article. He’s right of course, but I’m instinctively suspicious of Spiked and its ex-revolutionary-communist clique of born-again libertarians and their truly extraordinary powers of self-publicity.Report
