Thoughts on economics and liberty

Christopher Hitchens shows Shashi Tharoor the meaning of free speech. Not cowardice it is.

Here's Hitchens making some fundamental points in favour of liberty. Shashi is bothered about "law and order". Well, if Muslims are allowed to use violence and get away with it, they'll use MORE OF IT.

A bully MUST be brought to a halt. If Muslims use violence when they feel "offended" (like the VHP has started doing), let them be picked up and put behind bars for the rest of their life. PERIOD. What's the point of giving the state a monopoly over the use of force if it is unable to STOP violence?

Enough is enough.

    I don’t know why you give Shri Tharoor so much weightage, as a “good guy” in a “bad party.” What ‘good’ has he ever done?

    Please note: I asked “done,” not “said.”

    This man has said a lot of progressive things while at international fora, but then come back home and done the opposite.

    Shashi Tharoor said a lot of things because he has command over words and is willing to put that command to work. No more, no less. He would be a good “paid speaker” for the lecture circuit. Whether he means what he speaks… is hard to fathom.
