Samizdata weighs in on Live8
Live 8… Opportunity or moronfest?
Live8 is going to be a freak show, that is for sure, surrounded by pro-poverty activists (by which I mean people who argue for a world structured in a way in which more people will be a great deal poorer) such as identity obsessed feminists, pro-Saddam communists, eco-luddites and all manner of other folks with very strange ideas about the nature of reality.
As commenter Gordon said, “I wonder if the backstage caviar will be of the free trade variety”.
One thing Live8 won’t have that LiveAid had is this guy‘s sensational perfomance.
(Come to think of it, Freddy would have made a sensational Phantom.)
