Wolfgramm: intellectual sandbox created by political propagandists
"Libertarians are concerned with first principles and universality. That forces them to confront the categorical differences that distinguish branches of philosophical thought. Everyone else is playing in an intellectual sandbox created for them by political propagandists. When the state dominates popular rhetoric with terms like 'public interest,' 'public good,' and 'utility,' it effectively limits (and incentivizes) the thinking and vocabulary of those with undeveloped critical thinking skills. The information hoarding perpetuated by modern corporatism astounds me." ~ Paul Wolfgramm Jr.
