John Carpenter on Reagan

“I hated the Reagan years. I hated them. He destroyed unions, for one thing, and they’ve never come back like they were. I’m not saying unions are perfect but they’re necessary. And the idea of unrestrained capitalism is just bullshit—and that was his thing. Just take off the restraints and the invisible hand will guide us! No it won’t! It just won’t happen that way because it doesn’t work that way, you old piece of shit!”
