Tales from the kingdom of smug: ID linked to government financial regulation

Commentator Tony Blankley attempts to link financial regulation with intelligent design (bad) and non-regulation with "an evolutionary process" (good).

The whole tangled metaphor reads like the guy doesn't get it.

Whether one regulates or doesn't regulate is intelligent design - because intelligent agents make the choice either way.

And regulation has its own evolutionary process - often, alas, it is the law of unintended consequences = the system evolves without guidance to produce unintended outcomes.

Some people should read up on ID and Darwinism before they use them as metaphors.
