Law Legislation and Liberty explained how our atavistic morals still influence our value preferences in the modern open society, Hayek expounded that those primitive morals which helped us survive in the past are simply incompatible with the existing social order. We cannot continue to analyze the problems of a society using the same archaic framework of those baser instincts, theories matter but instead all people seem to value are "good" intentions.
John Stossel may be a bit shaky as a libertarian, but he seems like a decent guy. Unlike some of the guys at Cato who even endorsed people like Giuliani, Christie, or Fred Thompson, Stossel said on O'Reilly's show that he thinks Ron Paul is right about 'almost everything.' He gets credit for that in my book.
The Negro would be so much better off if the govt got rid of welfare and the minimum wage. Give them a nice job as a shoe shine boy or bell boy.
You see what liberals think of black race? You think less of them and refuse to address your racism.Libertarians understand that they DON'T NEED welfare and the minimum wage.
Re: Jerry Wolfgang,I see what you're doing there. A true racist would want to keep the welfare state and minimum wage laws in order to guarantee that blacks remain poor and jobless. By fooling racists into wanting the contrary, blacks will finally have the economic freedom they so longed for. Sorta like when Bugs Bunny fooled Daffy into saying "It's duck season - shoot!"Am I right or am I right, Jerry, sweetheart?
Why does W.W. automatically associate poverty and blacks then? Welfare and minimum wages keep every one down regardless of their race. Productive blacks don't worry about welfare and the minimum wage any more than whites.
Don't be so naive buster. Everybody knows it's really duck season!
John Stossel may not be a perfect libertarian, but he does make people think and he comes off as a guy who is at least open to learning new things. He openly admits that he used to be a "big government liberal". Now, he clearly sees that government is a huge impediment in the progress of man and that the marketplace is a far better way to handle nearly everything. No, Stossel isn't a "perfect" libertarian (is there such a thing?), but he has come a long way in the right direction and I don't see why that won't continue to happen.
