To James On Anarcho-Capitalism

Source: Mises Canada

paintingmelbourneBetter late than never I suppose! I hope this response finds you and your associates at Mises Canada well, James.

Back in July you took issue with a now-deleted article, where I weighed-in on the topic of anarcho-capitalism. Specifically, you disagreed with my assessment that the ideology is a hopeless contradiction. You put considerable effort in being both fair and reasonable with your arguments; I will do my best to return the favor.

Keep up the good fight, Adam

I apologize for my delay in responding and hope this message finds you well, Adam.

The answer to your question can be found in the question you’ve sent me. Specifically, the answer is “I.” You are why you cannot understand what propelled your predecessors to have the faith they had.

Turn Out… For What?

Before we overdose on liberal tears, let’s explore the hilarious campaign fail that was #TURNOUTFORWHAT

What kind of message was that? What kind of identity is that conveying, what kind of ideal? No wonder Tyrone, Mohammed and Aiden stayed home while Grandpa and Grandma put Republicans back in the Capitol. Who wants to turn out for that?

It’s not surprising this video didn’t go viral, that Huffpo or Upworthy wasn’t declaring “so much this.” Fact of the matter is, this ad went too far, it was too much this.
