I know y’all are sick of hearing me say how busy I’ve been lately. Sorry, broken record, yada yada.
I know I’ve been neglecting you, but this wonderful piece by R.J. Eskow, whom I’d never heard of before now, has crossed my path, and I pass it along as a peace offering. It’s the 11-question Libertarian hypocrisy test, including such gems as,
Is a libertarian willing to admit that production is the result of many forces, each of which should be recognized and rewarded?
Is our libertarian willing to acknowledge that workers who bargain for their services, individually and collectively, are also employing market forces?
Does our libertarian use wealth that wouldn’t exist without government in order to preach against the role of government?
(… the latter directed at PayPal billionaire Peter Thiel).
This is good stuff. Enjoy.
