Some times people laugh or gasp when I tell them that Latin Americans have an intuitive understanding of liberty, yet I see it every day on the side of the road, in the garages, and the buses. Once upon a time, there was a common expression: “If you can’t find a job, make one.” People don’t say that any more, but here they still live it. If a Mexican or a Colombian needs to make money, he buys or makes what he can, walks out to the street and starts selling. Maybe he has enough money to pay the government kickbacks (a.k.a. “business permits”) or maybe he doesn’t. The entrepreneurial spirit of Latin America is unstoppable, the courage of the people.
Perhaps I am wrong to glorify this courage, as it might be the same courage that helps you find the will to overcome your fear of heights, jumping a hundred metres into water when you know there is a stampede of buffalo right behind you. Behind you is certain poverty, and in front of you is a jump into the unknown that’s known as “life”. And yet, that is the same spirit which means that not all humans live in the open air, subjected to the elements and natural perils, but instead enjoy a life under shelter, of health, security, and perhaps even prosperity.
The more I understand about governments, the more I know that they can never function efficiently. The more I know about free markets, the more I realise how they are already functioning efficiently.
Agents of governments are accountable to nobody. Agents in a free market are accountable to everybody.
"Let’s not focus on how we can aid individuals. Let’s focus on what’s better for society as a whole!"
"… You do realise that society is comprised entirely of individuals, and that without individuals, there is no such thing as society… right?"
