Sam Seder: Economic Libertarianism is a fantasyland
Sam Seder nails it about libertarians and their puerile fantasies.
Building codes needed to protect against earthquakes? “Are people in Haiti more free because they’re out from under the scourge of building codes?” Government needed for safe water and food? A fire department?
“If you’re lucky you’ll be able to convince the rest of the American public that we should turn into Haiti.”
“It’s the most convenient fantasy world to live. It’s simply a way to go out and mentally masturbate on everything.”
