But people are starting to see through it.
You can always tell a phony economists or one on the wrong side by this litmus test and this goes for many that call themselves liberal. Apparently even for people like Krugman, Martin Ford, and Eric Brynolfsson. Someone might bring up a basic income that’s sufficient and they will say it shouldn’t be substantial enough to disincentivize work. Right there you see the sell out- Brynolfsson did this at Davos and was peddling placation efforts against automation, you can see his sell out stuff when pushes his automation justifies the superstar exec compensation line of bs. In the case of Ford, he suggests a BI but insists you don’t index it because according to Ford that would be really ill advised which shows he’s really a sellout. In the case of Krugman- oh no Sanders proposals are outrageous even though we had much of them prior to the Republican con revolution- so that makes Krugman a phony liberal. As bad as the Republicans are the Republicans pretending to be Liberals are worse.
Lets not forget conservative Fed Chair Alan Greenspan’s pronouncement that a key part of his job waa making sure the common man didn’t get too comfortable.
The Repubican ideology is a criminal ideology, it’s basically murder of the people who are the recipients of the structural violence needed to act on the ideology. Those victimized are driven into involuntary subservience, stunted in their development and never allowed to exercise their volition or develop their personality. These parasitic undead vampires create an underclass of undead zombies and in so doing murder themselves unconsciously and seek solace in a religious archetypes that reflect this guilt over unnecessary sacrifice.
