Discriminação, mercado e intervencionismo

"As Mises said, in a market economy, there is no legal discrimination against anyone. Freedom prevails, and "whoever dislikes the Jews may in such a world avoid patronizing Jewish shopkeepers, doctors, and lawyers." The problem is that this does not produce the results racists want. Indeed, the market always tends to bring people together in peace, neither compelling nor forbidding exchanges.

"Many decades of intensive anti-Semitic propaganda did not succeed in preventing German 'Aryans' from buying in shops owned by Jews, from consulting Jewish doctors and lawyers, and from reading books by Jewish authors." What the racists wanted required more. "Whoever wanted to get rid of his Jewish competitors could not rely on an alleged hatred of Jews; he was under the necessity of asking for legal discrimination against them."

The end result, then, is a policy of interventionism." The Hegelianism of the 2008 Electionby Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
