'Business Good. Government Bad.'
I just read Arthur C. Brooks' precious recent Washington Post polemic, "America's new culture war: Free enterprise vs. government control," and I want to comment on his one-size-fits all libertarian prescription for every conceivable social ill. As political scientist David Michael Green observed, it can be expressed in a bumper sticker:
"Business good. Government bad."
Please join me in repeating this line aloud twice, making sure to punctuate each rendition with a parrot's whistle.
You've got it! Simple, isn't it?
