“Follow the Fundamentals,” Brooks writes in today’s New York Times.
So it’s worth pointing out now more than ever that Dobbsianism is fundamentally wrong. It plays on legitimate anxieties, but it rests at heart on a more existential fear — the fear that America is under assault and is fundamentally fragile. It rests on fears that the America we once knew is bleeding away.
And that’s just not true.
Brooks cites the World Economic Forum’s recent report that ranked the United States as the most globally competitive country in the world, saying the foundation’s of U.S. prosperity are strong.
P.S. Good thing the Times dropped its subscription wall putting Brooks and his editorial page colleagues off-limits to general readers. Hurry up, Wall Street Journal!
