The Free Market Deals With Theft

Just as authoritarian liberalism is the source of virtually every problem we face, freedom is the solution. Here the free market deals with theft:

Only a minimal amount of coercion is necessary, and that only to the extent that people fail to live by conservative values. Any more than this minimum is tyranny.

On a tip from The Only Other Conservative in Seattle.

    Expect a law to be proposed by some douchebag with a “D” after their name (douchebag, of course) banning sharing of information like this between retailers.

    This is a part of human nature moonbats will never understand
    Human nature inspires us to be competitive, not for some misguided “glory” of destroying the other guy, but rather as a motivator to improve our own condition.
    And naturally, when our condition can be improved through cooperation, the successful do employ this cooperation with others, even if for their own benefit.
    But what actually empowers monopolies ?

    Who mandates certain products or services be used ?

    The left claims to hate lobbyists so much, yet advocates for a system where the most successful lobbyist takes all.
    And naturally, this easy road to riches becomes the most traveled at first, till it eventually becomes the ONLY road .

    The state college this man teaches at is just a few miles from where I live, so it’s what a pleasant surprise to learn not all the profs there are barking moonbats.

    Prof. Skoble may not be a true traditionalist, but anyone even close to that in academia is a breath of fresh air.

    Hey, we’re doin just great! Happy days are here again! I wonder if we can all work for the govt. Hey, wait a minute. Don’t all of us already work for the govt?
