Writings

The Invisible Hand Is a Gentle Hand, 14 Sep 1998
Defends the free market and individual liberty, quoting among others Frédéric Bastiat, Thomas Jefferson, David and Milton Friedman, John Lott, Isabel Paterson, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Adam Smith, Thomas Sowell, John Stossel and Walter Williams
The enemies of freedom have always maligned the free market. They have perpetuated myths like 'dog-eat-dog capitalism,' 'survival of the fittest,' 'the law of the jungle.' Robber barons. Heartless monopolies. A ruthless Wall Street fleecing a helpless Main Street. Nonsense. ... I envision a tolerant society — where those seeking refuge are welcomed with open arms. Better still, I envision a world in which people won't need to risk their lives to get to a place where they can be free. Once America is free, the benefits of freedom will overflow our borders. We will be a shining beacon to the whole world.
