The baby boomers' politics have covered a wide band of silliness, from the Weather Underground to the Timothy McVeigh types. The great majority of us are well in the middle of that spectrum, but still, there's been both leftie silliness and right-wing silliness.

婴儿潮一代的政治活动涵盖了各种各样的愚蠢行为,从“地下天气”到“蒂莫西·麦克维”类型. 我们中的绝大多数人都处于这个中间位置,但是仍然存在左撇子式的愚蠢行为和右翼式的愚蠢行为.

Even the most left-wing politicians worship wealth creation - as the political-action-committee collection plate is passed.

甚至最左翼的政客也崇拜创造财富-当通过政治行动委员会筹款盘时.

Only a few good leaders have paused to reflect seriously on being leaders.

Adam Smith is misread as being amoral precisely because people don't read his first book, because they don't read 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments.'

亚当·史密斯(Adam Smith)被误认为是不道德的,正是因为人们没有读过他的第一本书,因为他们没有读过《道德情感理论》. '
