And what will be their guillotine?

John Maynard-Keynes--a 20th century British economist--once remarked that we have a strong penchant for organizing our present lives according to the defunct vision of some long dead economist (which is ironic, I know).

It is shameful, really, this neo-mercantilism shrouded in capitalistic, free market rhetoric. And all the while, I can hear them saying of our complaints, 'Let them eat brioche.'
