    Economics 101: Government Price Controls Suck

    I don't know what forum to put this in, but I'm putting it here.

    A little background - Michigan has the most expensive auto insurance in the nation because the government mandated that the insurance companies provide lifetime medical care to victims of car accidents. The fee for that was $220 per driver per year.

    Last year, the state finally got a reform through, which meant that we don't need to carry unlimited medical any more. The fee for unlimited coverage immediately dropped from $220 to $100.

    I didn't start out thinking that anti-vax people were fools or impervious to reason, it's from my experience here that I now think that.

    Anti-vaxxers, responsible for a 30 percent uptick in totally preventable diseases in the world, have blood on their hands. They shouldn't be considered civilized members of society. If they refuse to listen to a century of scientific studies confirming time and time again that vaccination is an unquestionable good for humanity, then it's time for us to start treating anti-vaxxers as what they are: dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation. If we can't convince anti-vaxxers to change their minds, we must attach enough social stigma to the delusion that agnostics cease to join them.

My admiration for him ends where his anti imperialist pro communism ideology starts.

    It should probably go in a libertarian forum, but this is a valiant effort.
