David Friedman's Quote of the Month

"IN AMERICA, WE have a two-party system," a Republican congressional staffer is supposed to have told a visiting group of Russian legislators some years ago.
"There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party."
He added: "Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called-bipartisanship."
From a column by Peter Brimelow, the rest of which I disagree with.

I highly recommend David Friedman's writing. The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism is one of the more stimulating books I have read in my life and he has a way of making economic thought accessible to anyone in such books as Hidden Order: The economics of Everyday Life and Law's Order: What economics has to do with Law and why it matters.

Okay, back to work...
