A Little Dickens

Quote of the (last) Month:

Libertarians are not beyond hope (and some are even cute), but they need to be Re-Educated.
I’d start with some Dickens novels, personally.

We Pompous Libertarians (TM) often believe that (welfare) statists are out of touch with reality.

When they go on to attack libertarianism as twenty-first century public policy, on the basis of nineteenth-century fiction, they do nothing to alter this belief.

Further detachment from reality is shown in the claim that some libertarians are cute. Actually, all libertarians are cute. Of course, the cutest libertarian of us all is Rahul Raguram.
