The Terror of Increasing Freedom
Posted by Jerry on October 17, 2007
From the Atlasphere Meta-blog:
On my daily walk to class, I am taunted by chalkings that declare obscure statements such as “Who is John Galt?” Undoubtedly the handiwork of some pretentious “free-thinking” student group, these chalkings echo a disturbing trend among college students to identify themselves as libertarians.
Why don’t people like her choose to migrate to some socialist heaven, where income is distributed from each according to his ability to each according to his need, where a set of staple foods is rationed to long waiting lines of people, where goods and services are distributed among people not in exchange for value or currency but in response to need?
Why are such articles written by neo-Marxists (and Rawlsians) who choose to live in the most capitalist nation in the world?
