Nobody asked but …

Sooner or later, the know-nothings are going to bite off more than they can chew.  POTUS is now threatening General Motors about plant closures.  The sad truth is, however, that when a business overproduces, it must cut back.

Voluntaryism holds that freedom necessarily involves individual responsibility for each individual act.  General Motors should have accepted responsibility, in advance, for manipulating the labor market.  The idea people at GM should know that start ups entail consequences.  They should be compensating Lordsville and their laid off workers for the shutdown.

But be that as it may, no politician has a right to exploit the situation further, promising, riding in with all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, to put humpty dumpty together again.
