Simple Answers To Simple Questions

Some joker at the Independent asks, Why are right wing bloggers more prolific online than left wing ones?

A question to which the prolific Tim Worstall responds, Because those on the right are the literate ones...

...Being able to crack open an introductory text on philosophy, history or economics ("Janet and John do Supply and Demand" for example) and grasp the contents does tend to remove you from the mouth breathing socialist column to the liberal capitalist one.

Who knows, he may well be correct - I was going to say that it's because bullshit tends to expand to fill the space provided.

But on reflection, I'm inclined to say that it's because 100,000 guys wanking each other off will generate significantly more heat than 100,000 guys going solo.

Science, that.
