While I was looking at DiLorenzo's ranting (see previous post), I noticed something else on lewrockwell.com, something so jarring it almost defies belief. Here are the headlines of two articles they list side by side:"America is a Police State"
and "Firearms Ownership Soars."
Do these seem as mutually contradictory to you as they do to "us" here at Unforeseen Contingencies?
There's no private ownership of firearms -- at least not legal ownership -- in a police state. (And in a police state, critics of the police state are not allowed to blog about it, but that's another matter.)
The juxtaposition of these articles is telling. As I've pointed out previously
, religious belief can render one incapable of even rudimentary reasoning. This is a good example of that, and evidence that "Austro-libertarianism" is neither economic science nor principled libertarianism, but quasi-religious dogma.
