More on "learning the right lessons"

One way to read the gains of hard right wing groups in many places, but especially in the US, is that it was a triumph of ideology and propaganda over the harsh reality of the shortcomings of conservative economics. I already posted some references to this before (here and here), but I keep being brought back to it.

Earlier this week Rachel Maddow did a whole segment about that, including an interview with Frank Thomas, basically making the same argument that opens this post. He is releasing a book (also available as an e-book) which looks interesting enough for me to buy it. 🙂

More on this as I read it.
