Leftist Elitism Faces Hard Times in the West

From the stodgy Economist, a magazine to which I had a three-year subscription while in graduate school.

They used to be way more free market over there. Now it's all hand-wringing and whining. They've been corrupted like the rest of the leftist elite, and now they're bemoaning the populist tide.

Interestingly though, in this piece below, Lexington warns the Democrats that mimicking "right-wing" wing populism ain't going to work. Voters are not fools. They'll go for the real thing every time, heh.

See, "Democrats on the Brink." (Cached version to get around the subscription gate; also at Google here.)
