Your City Has Become A Hellhole

H/T to Claire for pointing me in Silver’s direction.


You know that your city has become a hellhole when prostitution and drug dealing are two of the only viable businesses that remain in the city.

This is indeed telling. It tells me that the city has made its taxes, rules, regulations, inspections, and other forms of theft and harassment so overwhelmingly onerous that only those businesses that consistently evade all such predation are profitable. Change the rules, eliminate the government, and business will flourish.



Silver catches fire in this essay. It’s one of the best damn–Oh, what would you call it?–satires I’ve ever read.
