MAKING A LIST, CHECKING IT TWICE….Michael B?rub? isn’t so sure that full employment is a proper liberal goal:
Here?s where I?ve got to part ways, yet again, with some of my brothers and sisters on my left. ?Full employment? sounds nice ? it?s sort of goofy and utopian, like imagining that access to health care is a human right or something ? but it?s dangerously naive. Certain people should definitely be unemployed. In fact, I have a nice long list of names on my hard drive, all alphabetized and ready to go.
What a coincidence: I’ve got a list just like that too. What are the odds?
