Over at the LRC blog, Thomas DiLorenzo has written a post exemplifying calm reason and cool logic. Says professor DiLorenzo: “Anyone who buys a car from Ford, GM or Chrysler from now on is a chump, a sucker, and idiot, a loser, and a fascist. . . .Give the middle finger to anyone you see driving a new ‘American’ car if you value living in a free society at all.” Leaving aside the fact that Ford has not actually received any federal loans, DiLorenzo surely has a point. After all, what possible reasons could there be for buying an American car other than stupidity or latent fascism? And what other reasonable response is there to seeing someone driving an American car, other than extending your middle finger toward the driver?
