Let the world change you... and you can change the world

V For Validation

Some times I worry that maybe I’m perhaps a bit too extreme in my progressive thinking…. so it’s always nice to see other “big name” bloggers post something that echoes what I had said earlier.  Which is exactly what I’ve seen over the last couple of days.  First, there’s renowned (in left-wing circles anyway!) blogger Echidne making pretty much the same point I did about the myth of “free markets”.  And then there’s Pulitzer prize winner and NY Times columnist Paul Krugman commenting on “Pathetic Plutocrats“, saying exactly what I was saying a couple of days ago.

So it would seem that I’m pretty much right in the middle when it comes to progressive thinking!
