Abe Lincoln Thinks Michael Eisner Is a Jackass:

March 28th, 2002

Matt Haughey (Metafilter guru) posted the following response to the aforementioned Eisner essay on his personal site, A Whole Lotta Nothing:

In response to Michael Eisner invoking the name of Abe Lincoln to support his media company’s position, this other Lincoln quote is rather apt:
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
– U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
(letter to Col. William F. Elkins)

Excellent. Thanks, Matt.
