On Obama and Bernstein
June 8, 2011
Jeremy Bernstein studies physics as well as humanity. Both these disciplines make people feel dizzy.
That’s the human condition. For example, President Obama goes a bit bananas and tries to lead from behind. His solution to the runaway national debt is for us to live within our means. This common sense saying dates back to 1867 when Artemus Ward said, “Let us all be happy and live within our means, even if we have to borrow the money to do it with.”
Our well-educated president acts from hindsight. And he shows a lack of foresight by leaving out the “borrowing” part he plans to keep. The president is a popular, charming and smooth-talking man doing his best to muddle through disorder to an order that isn’t part of the human condition. Let us hope that Jeremy will join the fun to be had with the human condition.
Be brave, comrades.
