Why Is David Brooks

Not just him, but the whole culture of pundits and politicians who have dedicated their lives to using what influence they have to maintain what is basically a worsening status quo. A personally lucrative path, obviously, but David (and others) is rich now and he could go in any direction he wants and still be rich... and the choice is forcing is all to run in place with him..

I get the attractions of doing good or even doing evil. Both are at least doing something! Building the world or blowing it up. Something happens! Exciting! Okay, I guess a lot of them did help to blow up Iraq. Maybe we shouldn't encourage them.
