Bonus Quotation of the Day…

… is the opening paragraph of Deirdre McCloskey’s feature essay – titled “A Libertarian Is the Only Real Egalitarian” – in the May/June 2022 Cato Policy Report:

A libertarian – which mean a true “liberal” in the original sense of the word – wants a society with no human-made, involuntary ups and downs, no masters and slaves. That’s all there is to it.

DBx: Yes!

For even greater precision of meaning, I would say, instead of “with no human-made”, “with no human-designed“. But this, on my part, is nit-picking. Deirdre’s opening paragraph is a gem.
