And Those Are the Foundations of Strong, Healthy Teeth, as Well

Matthew Kaminski writes:

"What's too often overlooked is that the foundations of capitalism are those of democracy as well: rule of law and an independent judiciary, a private sector able to thrive free of state favor or caprice, competition and open borders for goods, people and capital."

Hmm. The rule of law is compatible with all sorts of market arrangements besides American-style capitalism. An independent judiciary is, in fact, an anti-democratic measure -- a good one, to my mind, but still anti-democratic. And what do open borders have to do with democracy? Open borders are most often an elite project forced on a reluctant populace.

So I'm thinking Kaminski just chucked a bunch of stuff he likes into a list.
