Let the Good Times Roll

Dave Killion — January 25, 2012

Antony, I understand your frustrations exactly (The Burden of Knowledge). Happily, libertarian scholar Walter Block has some good advice for us

“... the fight is so much FUN! So, forget about whether we win or lose. You’re right, we’ll probably lose, at least in the short run. In the long run, who knows?

I urge you to focus, instead, on the sheer pleasure of undermining the world view of the mainstream media, and all those other blowhards in the pulpit, in academia, etc.

Until I read Block’s article I hadn’t realized how much pleasure and satisfaction I have derived from straightening out loud-mouthed economic ignoramuses and know-it-all political naifs. Not to mention providing answers to questions from the more polite and open-minded. It really has provided a great deal of enjoyment. So go on, have a good time!

BTW, that was an outstanding video from Leonard Read and FEE. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
