Quote of the Day

NewImageFrom Don Boudreaux, commenting on Cafe Hayek about David Harsanyi’s article in Reason (“The Zuckerberg Hearings Prove Government Shouldn’t Regulate Facebook,” with the subtitle “Congress is filled with elderly politicians completely unsuited to regulate the tech industry”):

David Harsanyi explains that if the recent Congressional hearings featuring Mark Zuckerberg prove anything, it’s that Congress has no business regulating Facebook.  (It galls me to witness politicians, most of whom have never produced anything of value in their lives and who are in the business of using force to achieve their ends, sit self-righteously in judgment of someone who has indeed produced immense value for his fellow human beings – human beings who deal with him peacefully and voluntarily.)
