Benjamin Friedman over at Cato writes, with his head a foot up his arse:
"As Peter Van Doren pointed out to me the other day, the right way to think about this problem is that pirates are imposing a tax on shipping in their area."
Right, Benjamin and Peter -- and "the right way" -- and notice, this is THE right way, and any other view is sentimental claptrap! -- to look at rape is that rapists are just "imposing a tax" on women walking through the park at night.
And then there's this revelation"
"The reason ships are being hijacked along the Somali coast is because there are still ships sailing down the Somali coast."
I think I'm getting the hang of this! The reason women are raped in parks at night is that those durned broads keep on a' walkin' through 'em! They must be asking for it, or something!
