  • Populism is the seductive promise of a better world, and always will be, just like the always receding pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow.


  • The difference between a con-artist and many painters of modern art may be only theoretical.


  • Great success should have a label attached which reads: Warning! This product tends to be very corrupting.
