Trolls, and other contemptible people

Posted on

I liked this that I noted today:

It’s possible to believe that someone is completely wrong on policy while respecting his or her character. But policy aside, these are just contemptible people.

Paul Krugman, expressing a sentiment that is close to my heart about people of the type he refers to.

I make the point for good reason: neoliberals without arguments get very upset when I say that I presume that their dislike of people without wealth seems to underpin their comments. They call me all sorts of names - as Krugman is called all sorts of names. But all I'm saying, like Krugman is, is that such an attitude makes these contemptible people.

And if you don't like that please don't comment. Then I won't have to disagree with you.
