Milton Friedman, like Alfred Dreyfus,

Milton Friedman, like Alfred Dreyfus, lived long enough to be vindicated, and at least he wasn’t sent to Devil’s Island. Nowadays everyone agrees that Friedman was right all along–just like Dreyfus was innocent. But if you want to get invited to a dinner party in Georgetown, don’t ever mention the fact out loud. (If the Friedman/Dreyfus connection is obscure, go back and read my earlier post about the parallel between the Dreyfusards, as described by Proust, and America’s anti-Communists.)
