Over at the American Prospect, linguist George Lakoff continues his kick about framing by demonstrating he doesn’t understand economics:

No one becomes rich by themselves. There is no
such thing as a self-made man. If you?ve made a lot of money, you?ve
used the common wealth, and you have a duty to replenish it. You have a
duty to keep it there so that other people can use it. And that is one
of the things not said in the economic liberty myth.

Read the whole thing to learn that protection is freedom,
conservatives want a private military force, and many other linguistic
lessons about liberty.

Questions: Why are progressives enthralled by linguists? Are there any conservative of libertarian linguists?
