Honouring murderers (and robbers)

Written in a facebook post, by Robert Higgs. Although it only mentions Americans, it applies to politicians internationally.

“Are you ever struck by the number of ultra-criminal individuals — people who have great amounts of blood on their hands (e.g., Henry Kissinger, Ed Meese, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, Richard Perle, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama — who are not only not in prison, not only permitted to move about freely in society, but are treated as decent individuals and, on some occasions, feted as great and honorable ones? Truly has it been observed that the person who kills one or two is a murderer, but the person who kills thousands or even millions is a national hero.”

    Politicians create an artificial demand for their services. There is no real market demand for politicians or their dumb laws.
