Arianna's Eulogy: R.I.P.

We read Arianna Huffingpoof's adolescent eulogy of capitalism and dismissed out of hand, David Harsanyi read it and demolished it.

Harsanyi writes:

Huffington argues, in effect, that communism and "laissez-faire" (minimal-intervention) capitalism are equivalent ideological extremes.
Sure, one of these philosophies spurred the murder and misery of hundreds of millions worldwide; the other promotes liberty, innovation and welcomes foreigners to lounge around in expansive mansions paid for by their former oil baron husbands.

So we can agree; there is no such thing as a flawless ideology.
