Rick Pearlstein, "No, conservativism kills freedom." False. I asked the Booted One, the Social Venture Philanthropist who funds my blog. She said that killing the Cubicle Slaves would be cost-prohibitive, when you factor in the price of recruting replacements. Better to work us to death. "Flat world, Sweetie, why should an MBA in Dallas or New York make more than one in Calcutta? If you don't like it you are free to starve." She has a point. If you want to be idealistic, as so many young people do, you can always be a Fool. Start with amusing your own Boss, and go from there.
