Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 147 of Tulane University philosopher Eric Mack’s excellent 2018 book, Libertarianism (original emphasis):

That function and virtue [of the market order] is to enable people with their own distinct and separate system of ends to engage in mutually beneficial cooperative interaction. The prospect of market reciprocity explains why people with deeply different ultimate values need not be enemies but, instead, can live at peace with one another to their mutual advantage. That prospect shows that people do not have to be remolded into devotees of some common “higher” end in order to live well with one another. It shows how a deeply pluralistic and tolerant social order is feasible.
