An Oligarchy of Lawyers

"Getting back to the Constitution" might be an improvement, but as today's Zero Government Blog reasons, not a very big one.

Unfettered Capitalism

Statists, especially those on the Left, are pointing to Martin Shkreli as a shocking example of what happens when the kindly hand of government is not there to restrain capitalist greed.
 
Conservatives and some libertarians are therefore apologizing for his action in multiplying by 55 the price of a life-saving drug.
