Economic freedom is a core human right

Stephen Moore wonders about The lunacy of the left — “It ranges from embracing dictators to the candidates they choose.”

It wasn’t so long ago that leading Democrats — JFK, Harry Truman and even the AFL CIO — were staunch enemies of communism. Today there is no place for such beliefs within the “progressive” Democratic Party. If it involves power to the state, the left is all for it — as evidenced by the rise of Bernie Sanders.

This is the same crowd that seems to prefer the economic systems in Sweden and Greece and Cuba over America’s. They preach human rights, but they don’t seem to understand that economic freedom is a core human right.

Trying to understand this ‘biting the hand that feeds you’ phenomena requires working with paradigms and realities that are not of this world. “Lunacy” was used but is now, perhaps, to be avoided because those with the symptoms are indeed running the asylum.
