Smashing Hand

I look to Jim Meddick's Monty for clever insights, but not often is it as political as it is clever. Today I was thus very pleased to see him take on the mythical, invisible hand of the market.

I have written earlier about the nefarious doings of this hand under the sheets of unbridled capitalism, and of the Ayn-Rand Right's obsession with the twin fetishes of privatization and limited taxation.

Today's Monty eschews perversion tropes in favor of puerile violence fantasies about the destruction of the icons of civic-minded progress. To great effect, I would say.
