On Morning Joe today, Brian Williams of NBC made a typical comment for that show: "Disasters show why we need government." I have heard such remarks 15 or 20 times recently, and they're fun. After all, supposedly we anarcho-capitalists are a tiny, insignificant minority. What are the statists worried about? They are worried about the truth, which we have on our side.
And they're whistling past the graveyard. Take Sandy. What has government done for the people of the ravaged states except deliver endless speeches, strut around in uniform, order people around, pay themselves a lot of other people's money, and stifle the healing market?
