O has switched political allegiance. Communism has been abandoned in favour of Free Market Anarchy. Amazon are delivering daily instalments of Nozick and Rawls.
‘Why Rawls?’ I asked as he would have no time for Free Market Anarchy.
‘I’ve got no time for Rawls. I don’t agree with anything he says,’ O replies dismissively.
‘So why the interest?’ Rawls is one of my heros. I am crushed.
‘You’ve got to argue BOTH sides.’ Of course. That’s why I endured hundreds of pages of Nozick.
The domestic habits of the Free Market Anarchist are identical to those of the Communist.
