Rousseau befriends a rich autocrat

Posted by Richard on UTC 2015-11-04 09:00.

This blog's favourite zombie is still staggering around and it looks as though he's found his new best friend forever: Bill Gates.

If you’re not bringing math skills to the problem then representative democracy is a problem.

Yes, that's definitely our zombie.

Rousseau's presence passed unnoticed outside this blog, but Gate's proto-fascism has also rung alarms for James Delingpole in Breitbart and derivatively for Eric Worrall in Watts Up With That.

Why did we write 'proto'? It is fully fledged fascism, always with our own good at heart.

Newcomers to this theme on our blog should consult the reference documentation on our house zombie. Not every blog has one of these, you know.
