Capitalism Needs No Justification

Some good thoughts here from Douglas Wilson on why the burden of proof for ethical justification falls on those who would promote heavy government intervention in the economy as opposed to a free market system.  Here’s a quote:

A laissez-faire grin directed at Smith does not have to be explained the same way that beating Murphy with a stick needs to be explained. Coercion always needs to be explained. Minding your own business does not need to be.
