First, if you are reading the AVC posts, make sure to read them together. I think the analogy is flawed, but the underlying idea of “collecting the economic surplus of a revolution” is spot on.

Having lived there for a good chunk of my life, I can tell first hand that Evanston doesn’t feel like a suburb.
