Elliott’s Law

This episode, we discuss Elliott’s Law, which Andrew has just created:

a) In politics, respect only flows one way: in the direction of statism.

People more statist than you are always “misguided”, people less statist are always “dangerous”.

There’s this idea that a little (or a lot) more state than what you prefer, is always far better than ever so slightly less.

b) The more you are demonised by people more statist than you, the more you demonise people less statist.

In this respect, objectivists are no better than any other socialist. In fact, they’re often worse.

We also discuss technocracy, which Nic has been investigating. Are technocrats the ultimate hard centrists?
