“With Loyalty Oath Demand, Crusade Against Corporate Inversion Gets Even Creepier”
Reason’s J.D. Tuccille does a decent job of pointing out the glaringly fascist / national socialist impulses behind Jonathan Alter’s desire to see American corporations — who, let’s remember, aren’t people, according to the left, and so don’t have speech rights — take “loyalty oaths” (how would that work, exactly?) promising to remain in-country, over-taxed, and less profitable for their shareholders because, well, the government deserves more money for providing roads or some shit, and besides, economic patriotism!
But I think it unfair of Tuccille to excerpt from Alter’s article as it’s been translated into English. Because you really do miss some of the nuances of calls by American progressives for a revival of national socialism when you don’t read them in their original German.
Und das ist nicht richtig.
