Tyrrany of Choice?!

Radley Balko is bemused by claims by leftists that Capitalism is bad because we've traded starvation, low life-expectancy and infant mortality for email spam, stress and too much choice in the marketplace. As he says in another article at The Agitator:

Critics of capitalism once predicted that free markets would wreak mass starvation, depletion of resources, pollution, and death.

They're now reduced to bitching about too many flavors of mustard.

We've won the debate.

Malthus is dead. Long live Julian Simon.
