I found this delightful pair of paragraphs at Brad Hicks' site. I will bold the word I am posting about:

Quote:
Bureaucracies don't all operate equally well, there are functional and dysfunctional bureaucracies. Obviously you need some way to hold dysfunctional bureaucracies accountable, and to provide support to the more functional bureaucracies. Randroids would tell us that the Invisible Hand of the Marketplace does that best. Having seen what happens when you leave everything up to the Invisible Hand of the Marketplace, I'd just as soon trust the Flying Spaghetti Monster to solve all of my problems. Theocracies like Iran get founded because people decide they'd rather place their trust in Highly Spiritual People. I think the lesson of history is that if nothing else, what's wrong with that is that it's way too easy for corrupt and malevolent people to fool others into thinking that they're Highly Spiritual People.

Me, I trust motivated voters informed by sensation-seeking muckraking journalists more than I trust the Invisible Hand of the Marketplace or Highly Spiritual People.

Here's a related phrase:


Quote:
Bushivik political ideaology.


Bushivik definitely has a ring of evil to it.

I love "Randroids". The phrase communicates the predictability of the so-called "research" this group spews out, as in an android saying just what he's supposed to. I'll cross link this to the "Belief Tank" page.

In fact, the whole quote is pretty good. Got a link, Kim?

"Bushevik" is now a classic. It was nominated by tcanfield some time back.

The specific quote is from a sub-thread near the bottom of the comments (the long sub-thread):

This specific post is in a sub-thread here:

It's by bradhicks himself.
