A Blast from Reason’s Past….?
So saw this interesting piece in my article feed today. I tend to be unReasonable when it comes to reading their stuff, so can someone more familiar tell me why this isn’t a problem?
I’m now more or less convinced that Mark Ames is a lunatic, that his conclusions and theories about how the information he’s found ties together are nothing short of ludicrous, and that his primary value is to see what he digs up in terms of facts and determine if there’s anything behind his screaming of “fire”. That is to say, this article is clearly trying to turn up a conspiracy where one doesn’t exist. I still think the Kochs (and some of the organizations they back) have an unfortunate tendency to be affiliated with movements that are quite fringe, but Reason shouldn’t be held up to scrutiny by association.
