Tom Freidman: Everything I've said my whole career? Pretty much wrong. (Not that I'll ever admit it, I'll just start saying the opposite)
If there is one thing I appreciate about Andrew Sullivan, its that he admits it when he changes his mind, and says that he was wrong in the past. Why can't the people who write in the NY Times do the same? Here's Tom Friedman, basically admitting that the whole system of globalization that he has been the prime promoter of has caused both the financial and environmental ruin of the world. Can we at least get a little "I was wrong"? And his tag line, "The Great Disruption" has a strange echo of Kunstler's "The Long Emergency."
