Make no mistake, boys and girls: "Tea Party", "9/12" and "Christian Patriot" types, and their ideological fellow-travellers, would love nothing better than to see ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl as something of a "Pearl of Great Price" essential to AmeriKKKan National Unity and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations by His Grace and Favour Upon Thy Dear and Lovely Land, Rightful Heir and Claimant to the Former Title Held and Cherished by Apartheid South Africa of God's Own Country.

Especially when the reinforcing prolefeed behind this trope is pushed in a rather puerile tone and stylee of emotion as calls to mind Glenn Beck's manufactured exercises in weeping and wailing and bawling and boohoohooing unto the bosom of Bog and His Holy Angels, Archangels and Saints in Their Collective Grace and Mercy Upon Thy Dear and Lovely Land in This Her Dearest Hour of Decision therefor, or so the codswallop would have it.

But when all is said and done, however, it emerges that this Pearl of Great Price emotionally depicted as one with the very existance of Thy Dear and Lovely Land is actually closer to a misshapen black pearl of the sort associated with tales of ill-fortune going back to Polynesian lore and mythos about some pearl diver finding same eventually suffering some class of misfortune horrible dictu for the purposes and intents of this blog rather than a Mikimoto such.

Thus deflateth the ideal of proletarian ego conservatives would love to see when it comes to ekonomesie vryheid being seen as a Holy of Holies when it was undeserving of the ideal all along--especially where crony capitalism (cf. apartheid South Africa's Unholy Trinity of the Afrikaner Broederbond, Sanlam and Volkskas) and cartel behaviour (cf. IG Farben's depravities back in Nazi Germany) come into the equation, with risk of the whole becoming too dangerous to public as much as national interest.

So much for "economic freedom" being a Pearl of Great Price....
