From RR
  • Laissez-faire.
  • Capitalism and socialism.
  • Class-consciousness. Paul Fussell’s good reading (much of my philosophy as an editor is from him: getting rid of stilted copy and rewriting it simply), equal opportunity not equal outcomes and the problem is mid-century equal opportunity (the American dream) is going away; we’re turning into the Third World. Not a crack about immigrants (I don’t care where you’re from; play by our do-no-harm rule and you’re welcome) but saying there’s no more middle class; you have a few very rich and many very poor.
