The serfs pause in picking the regime’s crops. They raise their heads, and look piercingly at the handsome tax-eater castle on the hill, and wonder about the justice of their plight.

Of course, a populist movement has its problems. It’s diverse in every sense. It needs libertarian intellectuals to guide it, not conservative Republican scamsters.
Nullification, interposition, abolishing the central bank, opposing all bailouts—these people are right on many things, far more right than Stalin’s favorite US newspaper, which likes the status quo just fine if only it could have its influence and subscribers back. But the NY Times will continue to shrink in every sense. And now, on to Rothbardian anarcho-capitalism! (Thanks to Travis Holte)
