Henry Farrell offers a wingnut manifesto. The loonier corners of wingnuttia, including some sections of ABC News, have determined that the only response to the prospect of a small marginal increase on income over $250,000 is to stop working altogether. Fine. Henry suggests the following a “Go Galt, Go!” manifesto:
We proudly salute “Dr. Helen,” Glenn Reynolds, and Michelle Malkin, for identifying the only possible response to Barack Obama’s victory – ‘going Galt.’ By withdrawing their creative and intellectual achievements from the economy and stopping tipping waitstaff, the schmibertarian right can surely bring the parasites and Democrats to their knees. We look forward to these three thought leaders striking the obvious first blow, by refusing to blog for the ungrateful masses and withdrawing to a secret compound until the world capitulates to their demands! Only a universal wingnut blogging strike can bring the moochers to their senses. John Galt lives!
Perhaps one day we will be able to live in harmony.
