Matt Yglesias points out—almost gleefully, really—that organized labor has opposed the government’s antitrust action against AT&T and T-mobile. It’s a dilemma for the left! Our friends and our enemies are on the same side! So hard.
But what if there were some other principle that really mattered to us? Something that couldn’t be reduced to the distinction between friend and enemy?
Unfortunately, I have no idea what that is.
