I was out of town, busy with family, and did not blog. I did not eat turkey, first time in a few decades, but did feast on seafood and steak and need to exercise, as December could be fattening.
In fairness, Krugman probably doesn’t understand what actually happened at Plymouth. He certainly doesn’t favor an extreme form of socialism where there’s zero incentive to produce. But if you want to mock conservatives for believing that an economic system based on sharing could leads to all sorts of unspeakable evils, you might want to pick an example that doesn’t prove their point.
