Another award

I'll have to figure out where to put this one between all the soccer trophies and the gilded statue of a little boy in a wheelchair I won for my artistic cruelty. The Right Wing News pronounces judgment, which is of course entirely scientific, dispositive and not to be doubted in any way:
The 7 Best Pure Writers On Conservative Blogs

Vox Popoli: Intellectual, but raw — and always politically incorrect. It’s fun to see what Vox is going to say next.
Is it fun? I will admit that I'm not infrequently surprised and occasionally even a little appalled myself. Evolution was one thing, but how on Earth did I end up a free trade skeptic? I suppose I merely follow where the evidence, the logic, and most importantly, the potential for momentary self-amusement happen to lead.

Based on the other nine, it's obvious you don't have much competition. Right wing blogs all seem to be stultifyingly boring. When I ran for Congress all the Republican events I attended were much like these blogs, proper and boring. But the Democrat events I attended were all rocking events. At the Columbus Day Dinner, a big Democrat event in my state, people even danced on the tables. At the time, Republicans in my state wouldn't even let the topic of abortion enter in to the debate. But when I walked into a Democrat county convention, they were spiritedly debating abortion. The vote didn't come out the way I would have preferred, but they weren't afraid of the issue. If it wasn't for their politics, I'd be a Democrat in a heartbeat. But their politics is obnoxious, so I tell people I'm a Christian Liberterian.

AP is a typical RINO, but Hotair (Me-so-Michelle's creation) is useful for tracking the GOP talking points of the day. Don't expect much beyond "hooray for our side" and you won't be disappointed.

Dreher is just trying to cheerlead a Republican global warming alarmist movement that mainly exists in his imagination. Verbal incoherence and intellectual incontinence are to be expected from such an effort.

Jonah has his moments, but he is ultimately a company man.

Steyn is entertaining. Whether he's right or wrong about a particular issue, his delivery is usually spot on.

Notably missing from the list aside from Vox is any writer who deals with the serious economic issues and one suspects that Hawkins isn't spending a lot of time on Vox's econ posts. Part of the problem with the right is that no one is willing to devote anything more than superficial attention to the economic/debt issues that are the greatest threat to our liberty and prosperity in living memory.

That's because the right is certain that the cause of all of our financial problems was the Clinton administration enforcing the community reinvestment act that Jimmy Carter dreamed up, forcing the bankers that are doing God's work to lend money to lazy blacks and hispanics so they could buy houses instead of decent white folk. And the only reason we haven't had a recovery in the economy is because the animal spirits are waiting for Obama to lose, because once Romney wins the stock market will go zooming up and jobs will appear and everyone will go buy things and house prices will go way up.

And yes, this is what these morons actually believe.

Blogger carnaby August 23, 2012 12:09 PM  

You know vox, I often enjoy your writing on social and gender issues, and especially on religious topics, but I do find your economics a tad flat. Literally flat that is, as in lacking consideration for the chaotic nature of the subject.

For example, you fail ever to consider the dominant psychological nature of economies and economic growth. I lack eloquence and thoughtfulness so I'm going to butcher this, but...

I claim that if a population is psychologically exhausted in ways that affect economies, then the economy in question will experience retarded growth. On the other hand, if the population in question has emotional reserves of the opposite nature, then the economy will experience accelerated growth. This is true all things being equal, that is with no change in policy.

Now, changes in policy can help or hurt in either of these situations, but the change in policy will have to be, loosely, large enough to overcome the emotional state of the population. So a policy change that you think is good, and might well be, may show a positive, negative, or unmeasurable change in the economy depending on the mental/emotional state of the population in question.

Now, for the current economy, given the emotionally exhausted state of the population in terms of matters of economy, the policies of Bush and Obama were exactly the opposite of what was needed to unleash a boom in the long run, and in the short run made no difference at best, and obviously deepened the emotional issues of the population.

That said, if the idiots of the Obama administration at some point could at least stop making policy changes that made things worse still, then we would eventually experience a relative turn-around of the economy. This turn around may not last, and you are right that there are limits to what an economy can take before going bankrupt.

But those are boundary cases, which while extremely important and interesting, are not the whole of the economy. And who cares? Well the important thing is that people are fickle and when things are bad, they want to feel better NOW! And this is important to address because the argument needs to be made, much like a good spanking, that when you've dug yourself a hole, the things that might seem like they'll make you feel better NOW won't, and will make you feel worse tomorrow. Hence, the only course of action that won't kill you (the economy) in the long run, is to take your medicine.

Can you imagine if the majority of folks had known and accepted this proposition for the last hundred years? That's the trick, otherwise you're not helping anyone. The mass of humanity must be taught to implicitly accept that there is no miracle pill for the economy that will turn it around instantly when things are bad, and that any pill they take will only make things worse by instituting a detrimental cycle of dependence that will eventually exhaust the economy.

It appears to me that vox realizes that human nature has not evolved into anything different than it has ever been and the overall dynamic follows a cyclical pattern that is historically identifiable and inherently predictive - specifically with regard to "the dominant psychological nature of economies and economic growth".

Josh, yes that was long, but hard to make an argument, even a bad one, without some length. Daniel, Josh, belittling and ignoring the psychological aspect of the economy is a mistake if you are serious about it. If you don't actually care, then as you were.

IM2L844, human nature has not evolved, so what? The overall dynamic follows a cyclical pattern, no kidding. And what of that? Seems the approaches taken to control economies aren't helping are they? Why do you think that is? Why do people continue to try the same remedies over and over again and then act shocked that they get the same outcome? How can this situation be changed for the better?

I contend that economics as mathematical formulation will not help, because people will keep believing seemingly logical ideas like the one that says you can spend your way out of a recession, or that massive deficit spending will prevent an even bigger rescission once a recession is finally recognized to be inevitable.

I'm not trying to advance any economic theories. I was simply addressing your expressed opinion that Vox fails to consider the psychological nature of economies.

In my opinion, you are demonstrably wrong.

Now, as for my opinion on a solution. I only see one reasonable solution. Reset. Let the international financiers go broke and commit suicide. Get the inevitable suffering out of the way as soon and as quickly as possible. But I make no claims to having a firm grasp on macro-economics, so take that with a truckload of salt.

Blogger James Dixon August 23, 2012 3:14 PM

I'd say that a short term (6 months or so) rally is a distinct possibility. People sometimes like to think that anything must be better than what we have now. They're usually wrong, but that takes a while to sink in.

> ...that human nature has not evolved into anything different than it has ever been and the overall dynamic follows a cyclical pattern that is historically identifiable and inherently predictive..

Predictive as to nature, yes. But predictive timing of the patterns is another matter entirely. That's what the various wave theories have tried to model, with a best only moderate success.

The problem with Americans who beat their head against the wall where politics are concerned - those who believe the system is actaully real and legitimate; they cannot fathom that it is not - is that the system is not actually real and legitimate.
TPTB do not want things to work well. Or for you to be wealthy, educated, and free. How can one rule a people like that? One cannot.

Make things better? Benevolent government and politicians? A few key decisions to make things better for the people? The RNC? The DNC? Absurd. Hookwinking people into harming and destroying themselves through belief and ignorance is quite the spiritual Jest.

Alan Greenspan hinted to the entire nation that it is about "Creative Destruction". There must be ashes for the Phoenix to "rise from".

Quite possibly true, I haven't read enough here to know for certain. I'm only going by what I have read, which always strikes me as being shallow "a causes b" without considering the strong causal relationships between a and c, c and d, and d and a and/or b.

Now, as for my opinion on a solution. I only see one reasonable solution. Reset. Let the international financiers go broke and commit suicide. Get the inevitable suffering out of the way as soon and as quickly as possible. But I make no claims to having a firm grasp on macro-economics, so take that with a truckload of salt.

I think this is a quality point but would need it's own thread for the discussion and would probably have to spawn sister threads on evolution etc.

In short, quite possible they aren't as ignorant as you think. Some certainly are both intelligent and benevolent, but there ideas about how to make things good are wrong, and so they intelligently pursue the right outcome but with the wrong approach. Others are stupid, still others are evil, and some are both. In the end we all pursue pleasure in whatever form suits us best and that's the key.

I just realized why Ryan has a good chance to be vice-president. He's a real bean-counter. Nobody else on the Repiublican side is a bean-counter. Nobody else on the Democrat side is a bean-counter. There are thousands of govenment worker accountants, yes, but they are busy sawing sawdust.

We need a bean-counter to save us.
