Unqualified Offerings

"I have noted before that some of the people who blow the best dog whistles also seem to work hard to live up to the libertarian critique of The System: The System is a racket, they say, and then they demonstrate it. See: Banksters, Private Military Contractors, much 'privatization,' etc. It seems that once you accept the critique, once you see the brokenness of the system, you have two choices: You either become part of the problem, or you hold yourself to some standard that exists independently of the system."
