They just started calling for it? I thought they’d been calling for it since, oh I don’t know, since they lost that power during the Renaissance? The FREE MARKET Renaissance? There’s a reason why the Dark Ages were Dark, and it’s not just because there was no intellectual enlightenment. It was literally dark, because centrally planned economies are as inefficient as public school teachers are at teaching, so nobody but royal guards and rich merchants could see at night.
If I paid attention to the news and what was going on a little more, I could probably form some kind of “conspiracy theory” as to why they just started saying this now even though they’ve believed it since forever.
But I don’t, so I’ll leave that part up to you.
