Two From Donald Sensing
(click to enlarge)
I first learned of Donald Sensing from Kevin Baker at The Smallest Majority, who has cited this Sensing conclusion on several occasions:
I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free.
Take the time to read both of these more recent entries at Sense of Events:
The Coming Federal Debt Default
The Crush Depth of Debt
The "crush depth" analogy is frighteningly apt, I fear.
