I'm also trying to track down some editorials referenced in a recent letter I got from the Advocates for Self-Government. Two people, in three separate op-ed's, blame libertarianism for the damage Katrina did to New Orleans.
Close your mouth - took me a while to close mine, but it's better in the long run if you do.
Anyway, I want to find the complete editorials before commenting in depth. I also want to find contact info for the writers to publish here. Some quick thoughts on what I read:
- Libertarians didn't build substandard levees
- Libertarians didn't encourage people to live below sea level by providing cheap flood insurance
- Libertarians didn't deny basic 1st and 2nd Amendment rights to reporters and victims in the area
- Private organizations moved quicker and more efficiently to provide aid to victims, despite government efforts to stop them
Anyway, I'll have more once I find the complete op-eds in question.
