Avatar in China

AvatarChina

Home owners in Hubei China protest the demolition of their homes.  I raise my appreciation of Avatar a notch.

I could be wrong, but it's ironic to me that not just slaughtering and stealing what you want is a somewhat unique human trait. And it is a particularly evolved human trait known as libertarianism.

I'm always a big critic of libertarianism... but really, Andrew?

I'd much rather welcome my Reason/Tyler Cowen overlords than the Chinese.

Z+C, you missed the "not".

Avatar may be the most American movie ever made. Economists complain all the time how economic insights are hard to frame in pop culture movies, but they did a good job with this one putting the case for secure property rights in terms of raw emotion.

Andrew,
I think that if you compare intraspecies violence, including wars, genocides, slavery and so on, you will find that humans are probably worse than most.

In Palestine too....
