Woodrow Wilson was an especially devoted white supremacist, even by the standard of his day. The Left is finally targeting Wilson for this, but Wilson's legacy is far worse than even the Left will admit.
The saddest aspect of this economic ignorance is that these evangelicals have completely ignored the real reductions in poverty rates in the past forty years, reductions that are due to liberalizing economies that once were in socialist straitjackets.
The Left believes that we need the state to force people to act in line with "social justice." This means that somebody must force compliance with state edicts, even if those people aren't called "police."
Economists are often accused of being insensitive or unconcerned about social problems, because we try to consider all the costs and benefits, both short term and long term. This often means that we are skeptical of the popular quick political fix.
It’s important to call the government and media on this unholy alliance, whether you view their targets as sympathetic or not. If we stay silent when they come for our enemies, they will ultimately come for us.
