YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE?: Read this good post from The Edge of England’s Sword. Iain argues that economic freedoms need to be grounded in “a decision by the people to champion liberty, not wealth.” I would also add that a society that can only agree to protect material goods (health, wealth, safety, pleasure) has lost sight of everything higher than the self: honor, liberty, life (even painful or “unproductive” life) and love, to name only four. This division arises constantly in contemporary American politics, from OSHA to welfare to embryo-destructive research.
