Tim Blair, whom I have been remiss in not adding to the blogroll, an oversight that has now been corrected, eviscerates Lewis Lapham.
“The rights of the individual in the United States have been increasingly diminished and the rights of property continually augmented,” he gripes, as though people have nothing to do with property. Apparently in Lapham’s world property invents itself, then forces itself upon us humans. Go away, house! Leave me alone, car!
