The Objective Standard has published my latest article, “How to Actually ‘Separate Government from the Corporations’.”
I argue, “Beyond the basic role government properly plays in protecting individual rights, government should remain separated from churches as it should remain separated from corporations.” I outline four main ways to separate the government from economics: stop interfering with businesses, stop subsidizing them, stop taxing them, and respect the free-speech rights of corporate members.
Members of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement should be careful. If they logically think through their goal to “separate government from the corporations,” ultimately they will end up championing capitalism. And then they might decide that Pennsylvania Avenue offers a more appropriate center for a protest.
