Our Nuts vs. Their Nuts
Our nuts were partly right. For example, in a comment last August on the Paleo-Future blog, Mark Plus wrote:
The right's version of the doomsaying seems to attract less notice, and it usually involves finance: Social Security, Medicare, the Federal Reserve System, fiat money, regulations on business, etc. will allegedly cause a financial apocalypse. You can find warnings of this sort going back to at least the time of the New Deal, but for some reason their proponents don't attract the criticism and ridicule directed towards neo-Malthusians usually associated with the political left.
I still think our nuts were exaggerating, but they no longer look absurd.
