- We know the key Promethean eras of the last 600 years: the invention of the printing press, the scientific revolution, the agricultural revolution combined with the industrial revolution, the nuclear power revolution, personal computing and the internet and … now this moment.
So Friedman thinks that there have been 4 Promethean moments within the lifetime of , say, the President. Maybe a little hyperbolic? I actually think that in the stiff competition for biggest NYT blowhard, Friedman takes the cake. Not Stephens, not Brooks. How does this guy still have a job, let alone influence?
I always thought very little of Friedman. But read this, b_b, and tell me, is he a complete idiot? https://www.nytimes.com/1998/05/02/opinion/foreign-affairs-now-a-word-from-x.html
