Another Good One-Off Blog Comment…

From Butler Schaffer at, responding to a post about a columnist decrying that the Nanny State is the only thing keeping us from a Mad Max dystopia (see also: Ron Paul’s debate answer on the health care question and the widespread read that what he meant is we should let people who can’t pay die).

I am reminded of a talk given by Frank Chodorov many decades ago. Chodorov was being very critical of government welfare programs in general, and was asked by a listener: “But what will happen to sick, elderly people?” Chodorov replied: “They’ll be left to die in the streets the way they used to.” The listener retorted: “When did that ever take place?,” to which Chodorov answered: “Exactly.”
