A letter I sent to the New York Times:

In a New York Times editorial on May 21st titled “Limits of Libertarianism” you published, “It was only government power that ended slavery and abolished Jim Crow, neither of which would have been eliminated by a purely free market”

The government abolishing Jim Crow and Slavery were incredible steps forward for our society; however, hailing these laws as miracles of government is like saying, “sorry I ran you over with my car, but now everything is okay because my bumper is no longer smashing your face.”
