KRUGMAN BECOMES AN ANARCHO-CAPITALIST

From his blog “Hey, why bother having an army? Let’s just rely on self-defense by armed citizens.” JK. Well, he really did say that but obviously it was intended as sarcasm. It’s from this post which also says this: “Traditionally, the division between conservatives and liberals has been over the role and size of the welfare state: liberals think that the government should play a large role in sanding off the market economy’s rough edges, conservatives believe that time and chance happen to us all, and that’s that.”

Now, I certainly don’t have any standing to complain about belittling your opponents view with snide remarks on your own blog, but his need to soften his own viewpoint is puzzling. “A large role in sanding off the market economy’s rough edges”. What he should have the guts to say is, “liberals think that the government needs do the things people are incapable of providing themselves and redistributing some of the wealth from the creators to the people too pathetic to support themselves.”
