Paul Krugman thinks the Republicans are bullies for insisting, Big Brother-like, that individual Social Security accounts don’t constitute privatization. Let’s call it the p-word because, at least according to this memo, it’s become a dirty word. But as I said earlier, this is the stuff of politics: the battle of definitions and who gets to name the world.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
