Chronicles Of Depression 2.0: #304: Fukuyama
Newsweek: The Fall of America, Inc.
In a long and rambling article that tries to smuggle through many premises that should be examined more closely than he has, Fukuyama becomes FuckYouyama when he tries to pull this shit:

That’s something you can’t shove into your fucking Excel spreadsheet, jackass.
But you better find a way to account for it.
