“That is simply false. Discrimination was required by law.” Althouse: A surprisingly sympathetic article about the asserted right to decline to make cakes/floral arrangements/photographs for a same-sex wedding.

Brando said …”At that time, in many if not most parts of the country the discrimination against blacks was so widespread that there simply weren’t reasonable options for blacks–many towns would have no restaurant catering to them, or jobs available to them, and the discriminating businessmen would argue–not unreasonably–that even if they wanted to serve blacks, they would do so at the risk of losing far more white customers who’d object. The free market could not in the near future correct the racial discrimination problem naturally.”

That is simply false. Discrimination was required by law. It would have been entirely possible for the CRA to simply eliminate the legal apparatus of discrimination, by regulating the actions of governments, without impairing the rights of private citizens to make use of their property as they saw fit. There is no way of knowing what this might have accomplished, because it was never tried.

“Far from being an end in itself, the truth on our college campuses is now treated as a mere instrument of combat.” The Flight from Reason on Campus | The Weekly Standard

Far from being an end in itself, the truth on our college campuses is now treated as a mere instrument of combat. It is wielded with feigned righteous-ness when it promotes a preferred cause and then abandoned when it produces the opposite result. In the end, this is the sad message that universities now convey.

Primarily in his classic Man, Economy and State, he shows that “the workings of the voluntary principle and of the free market lead inexorably to freedom, prosperity, harmony, efficiency, and order; while coercion and government intervention lead inexorably to hegemony, conflict, exploitation of man by man, inefficiency, poverty, and chaos.”

“I realized that America’s transition from a sovereign constitutional republic to a socialist democracy would not come about through warfare (bullets and tanks)…” Give Gruber a Break | Watts Up With That?

Another excerpt: “I realized that America’s transition from a sovereign constitutional republic to a socialist democracy would not come about through warfare bullets and tanks but through the implementation and installation of the “system” in all areas of government—federal, state and local. The brainwashing for acceptance of the “system’s” control would take place in the school — through indoctrination and the use of behavior modification, which comes under so many labels: the most recent labels being Outcome-Based Education, Skinnerian Mastery Learning or Direct Instruction.”
