Ingrates

The Professor (Victor Davis Hanson) weighs in on those who profit from the West while smearing it at the same time:

Roy doesn’t quite get that the reason that the UK recognizes an Indian novelist like her, writing halfway across the globe — and that she is able to jet over to the United States for lucrative speaking engagements, and that her books are mass-produced and hawked aggressively over global Internet book marts — is precisely the system that this child of capitalism so vehemently detests.


In the end I have to say that VDH has encapsulated my view of these elites. I don’t get disappointed, I don’t get angry, I just roll my eyes and wait for them to leave.

No immediate comment on the post; just wanted to say I like the changes around here. The BOTD is a superb idea.
