Waivers For Everyone

Reaganism. So predictable. How many years will it take the author, John Hayward, to understand that he has impeached military communism?

"like all socialist schemes, it relies entirely on the compulsive force of law"

"Every central planning scheme drives up costs and limits services."

"...the cost of forcing compliance with a government mandate [e.g. military communism] will always cause a product or service to end up with a higher price than it would have commanded in a competitive free market"

Central planning, compulsion, limiting services, and a higher price, indeed. And these are exactly what flagwaving shills for military communism want when they think about investing in businesses that sell stuff that nobody would buy voluntarily with their own money.

Examples of military communism for profit:

Now, Human Events is a Reaganist outfit. Hayward may need a little help to think it through even though he's got his free market talking points memorized very well.

If and when the government requires me to buy into my employers' $1000 deductible "health plan," I will write my own waiver by quitting my job.
