Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

What the Hell ?!? Friday / Quote of the Day, with a (possible) hoppy sip of neoliberalism

Perhaps there is some Bierstalinismus Fraktion out there, which believes that the proletariat will never be fully realized as a class-in-itself until it learns to appreciate hoppy microbrews, but which has reached an accommodation with neo-liberalism in which these joys are reserved for the revolutionary vanguard.

Also sprach Henry Farrell at CT.  He also supplies links and context, lest this heady kerfuffle be totally inscrutable.

In case anyone is wondering, I really do appreciate hoppy microbrews, and will seek them out, when it is not terribly inconvenient.
