DSK, the representative man of this age
It is truly symbolic of our time, that the head of the International Monetary Fund, directing vast billions in taxpayer dollars to countries that couldn’t repay, was also a sex addict who attended orgies all over the world.
What do the two activities have in common? Self-aggrandizing desire without a limit, whether for sexual freedom or for “compassion”—two of liberals’ three main passions.
As for the third unlimited liberal passion, I discuss it in the recent entry, “What is it that drives the left? GREED.”
He also seems to have no taste in women whatsoever. There was a time when womanisers boasted about the class and quality of women they seduced. Strauss-Kahn to me appears to represent not just the worst things about modern liberals but also, I hate to say, about the French. They have truly become a nation utterly tasteless (though they are still amateurs compared to the British) and a subject of global ridicule.
