Why Can't we Have Better Pundits?

Queen Brooks, or, as driftglass refers to him, David Fucking Brooks, caught here pontificating on healthcare in an OpEd titled, quite deliciously, Where Wisdom Lies:
The fact is, there is no dispositive empirical proof about which method is best — the centralized technocratic one or the decentralized market-based one. Politicians wave studies, but they’re really just reflecting their overall worldviews.
Yes, you servile little toe-sucker, there is actual evidence on planet Earth for one approach being significantly better than the other at controlling healthcare costs.  It's just one your masters don't want us to know about it because it doesn't involve indentured servitude to the feudal despots of the private health insurance "industry."
