But I Will Try…

Because social capital is still the most important thing. The social capital we’ve achieved as a society is your biggest protection. Otherwise the biggest thug with the most guns takes it all. So pay your taxes!!

Hmmm.. This is a flaw. “Social capital” has nothing to do with taxes. It has very little, if anything to do with government. Social capital is based on unique inter-personal relationships between individuals. Government interference in those relationships reduces (and possibly eliminates) social capital. If you are “paying taxes” for something, that thing doesn’t have anything to do with social capital.

Like what you read? Give Jim Roye a round of applause.
