Unfortunately, too much of this article is pure fantasy.
I'll give one example that shows the pattern. It is quite warped to pretend that the Republicans are unconcerned when their calculations of what efforts will be effective differ from this forum's general orthodoxy.
This ignores the passionate debates going on within their party, so it is, in the original sense, an "ignorant" position.
I personally have come to the reluctant viewpoint that I doubt if any governmental action has the potential to do much good in this particular mix of messes. Each positive point has equal negative side effects that will hurt.
Would you them try to pretend that I, too, am uncaring or unconcerned?
