In my disgust for David Brooks’ editorial that I blogged about earlier, something exacerbated by my exhaustion at the end of the day, I forgot to mention this choice comment:
“It is happier to live in a poor country that is moving forward – where expectations are high – than it is to live in an affluent country that is looking back.”
Isn’t Iraq a poor country moving forward according to Brooks? It must be much better to live there than the US or certainly France. Mr. Brooks, it sounds like you have a new nation to call home.
