Tyler Durden Was Wrong

“We are the world’s lost children. We have no Great War. No Great Depression, We are the middle children of time.”
-Tyler Durden

Sorry guy, but if these slacker post-moderners paid attention to anything they’d know that the next revolution is a global one. And we as Americans are just as blind as Mr. Durden to see it.

Globalization.

And if we don’t wake up to it, and learn to compete with the billions of Indians and Chinese, we are doomed to lose. So keep writing books Mr. Palahniuk, until the smash bestseller from Xiang Chiang comes stateside and blows your shit off the shelves.

Why am I such a fatalist? Damn you Thomas Friedman. Ya scarin tha kids!

hehe. have you read longitudes and attitudes? it's an assortment of friedman's nyt columns between 2001 and 2002. even though it cruxes on the garb that enveloped world politics around september 11, his proclivity for bouncing issues off of an undercurrent of technocratic globalization is pretty dank. werve?
