The problem I have with this article is that it pulls a Tom Friedman. It gives something a more-clunky-than-clever title and then asserts that the thing exists (epicurean liberalism; the world is flat). Then he seems to think that by repeating the thing it becomes an ontological fact rather than an epistempological tool that needs to be proven.
"In this flat world . . ." wait -- you are asserting as an actual phenomenon this thing that only you have identified as a phenomenon. It's masturbation.
