Yep. The value of idiocy is rising. However, I fear it is a bubble. Wot? A French Bank is going after the Wall Street Journal for Euro failure opinion piece. Evidently they are not aware of the American Constitution. Namely the First Amendment. Something about freedom of speech I hear.
Reuters has a tit bit.
(Reuters) - BNP Paribas said on Tuesday that it had asked French market regulator AMF to open an enquiry about a Wall Street Journal opinion piece claiming that France's largest bank could face a dollar funding crunch.I guess that in France you are not allowed to have the "wrong" opinion.
So far the US has not gone too far down that path. Unless you count "hate" speech laws.
