Is Jamie Galbraith literate?

Never let it be said that we deny anyone the opportunity to clarify their insults. Comes Jamie Galbraith to defend(?) himself:
The actual allusion is to Kurtz, in Heart of Darkness. Nothing especially to do with slavery -- though possibly worse.
Got it.  Milton Friedman wasn't a slave master, he was worse; Kurtz, with a heart of darkness. That casts an entirely new light on Prof. Galbraith, all right.
