The simple life

Gil Smart expands on my recent post about the proliferation of fascist memes in the Bush youth corps:
A complexity complex

This reminded me of something I'd read in the Wilson Quarterly this month, a bit about former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan. It spoke to Moynihan's semi-famous quote that "The biggest thing that will undo this society, it its inability to deal with complexity."

I don't think I've ever read anything more apropos to this particular moment in time.

There's more; Gil is a very, eh, smart guy, and as usual, he's on the money.
