CONCEPT BEHIND the watermelon movement (altogether now: green on the outside, red on the inside) is this simple question: Pollution is a crime against property. Why then do all of the so-called “green” solutions result in a weakening of private property rights? And why (as we have learned more recently) are the places where environmental damage is the worst those places where private property rights have been the weakest, and those places where the state has trammeled its citizens’ rights of free exchange in open markets most severely?
Oh, come ON, Alger! You know you can’t confuse a leftist with facts! It only makes their eyes big as saucers and spin around and around and around.
