    One word: lolwut. [cached]

    […] consider this amazing bit of circular reasoning [cached] from Ronald Bailey of Reason magazine:

    But what about the past? Haven’t societies collapsed due to overpopulation? To the extent that it is true that some societies have suffered collapses, we now know that it was because they lacked the proper institutions for channeling individual striving into a process of economic growth which ultimately promotes the public interest. Very few earlier societies could be characterized as either economically free or respecting the rule of law.

    See, if you live somewhere where freedom promotes the public interest, then obviously the public interest will never get any damage from freedom, right? It all makes such perfect sense!
