Haha I'm alternately terrified and amused (ok, outraged too).

The guardian has a new interview with Michael Lewis, and I loved this:
Interviewer: "When you have done readings from the book, how have audiences reacted?

Lewis: I never found anyone who said: You are exaggerating the importance of these people. The closest I got to the Trump administration was to talk to Steve Bannon about it. Bannon had this election line: We are going to tear down and destroy the administrative state. I asked him what on earth he meant by that. What would it mean to destroy the Department of Agriculture, say? He didnt really even try to answer. What we are witnessing is a decline in interest in how you fix
other peoples problems.
