Wherever there is a jackboot stepping on a human face, there will be a well-heeled Western conservative there to assure us that the best way to encourage a totalitarian government to take its jackboot off that face and engage in democratic practices is to maintain trade relations and let the free market system work.or the John Derbyshire quote from which it was rephrased:
Wherever there is a jackboot stepping on a human face, there will be a well-heeled Western liberal there to assure us that the face enjoys free health care and a high degree of literacy.Note: The Derbyshire quote is from (Warning: obscene language) this Dean Esmay rant. Hmmm. I saw Hillary Clinton on Bob Costas the other night. I disagree with her almost all the time, I hope she loses to a Republican the next time she runs, etc. etc. Even so, I was unable to detect her horns, pointed tail, goat feet or pitchfork. Her complexion was white, not red, and Bob Costas did not act as though he were smelling brimstone. I got the odd impression that she had some principles and wanted to live by them. Hmmm.
