Saved, In Essence, By Socialism

The drama that unfolded in Chile as 33 miners were miraculously,
meticulously rescued from the depths was riveting. It was not, however,
"a smashing victory for free-market capitalism," as claimed by a surreal op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, but rather a victory for faith, technology and especially caring, competent governance.

"The miners were employees of...an out-of-control, anti-union,
government-regulation-defying, safety nightmare corporation undergoing a (state-run) audit. The
miners were rescued by a government-sponsored intervention supervised
by Codelco, the state's copper company, (along with) the expertise of
NASA, an American government agency, and gifts from foreign
governments."
