DESTROY, DO NOT WOUND | The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

How does the @MontPelerinSoc rule the world from such a crappy website

You would think the global ringmaster of the neoliberal conspiracy would scrape off enough labour surplus to have a decent website. How are its minions to know want to do in this age of social media if they cannot even download the papers delivered at recent meetings?

Mind you, in Australia, the local ringmaster of the vast Mont Pelerin conspiracy that ruled the roost in public policy making in Canberra in the 1980s, which John Quiggin outed as the Centre for Independent Studies, did not have a full time staff member until about 1979: Greg Lindsey. Their 1st office opened above Uncle Pete’s Toys in St Leonards in 1980.

Moral superiority is the payoff of righteous outrage. No surprise there.
