It is no wonder that more and more Americans believe the game is rigged. It is no wonder that they buy houses they cannot afford and then walk away from the mortgage when they can no longer pay. Once the social contract is shredded, once the deal is off, only suckers still play by the rules.
I agree. And of course the fatcats and their enforcers (Timothy Geithner comes to mind) not only demand that suckers still play by the rules, they put them in jail if they don’t.
Of course. Lawlessness is only permitted to the ruling class, which makes the laws.
If American government devoted itself to defense and doing justice, as libertarians believe is the extent of its proper role, the first thing it would have to do is burn Washington, D.C. to the ground, along with everybody in the city limits and all the suburbs.
Which would, you know, at least be a start.
