My Libertarian Heart Gently Weeps...

...or howls uncontrollably, which would probably be more accurate.

From the Drudge Report today:

"Sarkozy, Merkel, Blair call for new capitalism"

"Merkel said the International Monetary Fund has not managed to regulate global capitalism, and she called for the creation of an economy body at the United Nations, similar to the Security Council, to judge government policy.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, leading the two-day conference with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, blamed financial speculators for encouraging a system fueled on debt. He called financial capitalism based on speculation "an immoral system" that has "perverted the logic of capitalism."

"It's a system where wealth goes to the wealthy, where work is devalued, where production is devalued, where entrepreneurial spirit is devalued," he said.

But no more: "In capitalism of the 21st century, there is room for the state," he said."

Jesus. Because the United Nations does such a spectacular job in everything. And because it would be smart to have the United Nations "judge" economic policy.

All of this, not to mention the scariest thing: these people are pushing strongly for a "New World Order." I don't care if that sounds conspiracy theory-y or not, it is frightening how casually these Euros are just throwing ideas like this around. This cannot happen.

I think even my more liberal friends will find this a terrible idea...right?

I have to agree with Sarkozy on one point. Capitalism is immoral, that's why it works. It allows for the cold hard exchange of value, free of any single arbiter's moral code. Jesus, I could go off on this for hours. ARRRRGGGHHH!!
