Don’t Chip Off the Old Mr. Block

“‘Mr. Block … licks the hand that smites him and kisses the boot that kicks him.’ Industrial Worker editor Walker C. Smith wasn’t foreseeing, by 111 years, Walter Block, PhD’s ‘Libertarians Should Vote For Trump’ (The Wall Street Journal, May 29); the character from Walker’s newspaper was fictional enough to be a blockhead in the most literal sense. Dr. Block should get his head examined. ‘Hats off’ to inviting Donald Trump to the Libertarian National Convention as being a more effective move than anything else the Libertarian Party ‘did in more than half a century of existence?’ Such mental gymnastics dwarf the cartoon Block’s comically undersized bowler.” (06/01/24)
