“Many times over the years people have demanded proof that liberty is better than the alternative. Sometimes the detail being questioned changes — maybe it’s the concept of human rights or ethics they are objecting to — but the argument is the same. They don’t accept the superiority of liberty over whatever they’d prefer, so they demand proof. No matter what I say, with each response, they move the goal post. With each objection, I’ll be asked to prove something different. At some point, I realize the person doesn’t understand because they don’t want to understand.” (06/09/21)
