La citation du jour
Generally, you are better off not reading the paper. It causes you to think like everyone else, which is to say, not to think at all. Instead, you spend your time getting worked up about things too remote and too complex to understand…things that you can’t do anything about anyway.
The issues are complex…but the motives are simple. The NYT and the FT want to sell papers. So they come up with stories that confirm readers’ prejudices, flatter their vanities, and distract them from their own concerns and challenges. Readers are encouraged to ignore their own problems and meddle in the affairs of other people.
