That drug peddlers are morally better than politicians might seem shocking, until we realize something important: Politicians’ interactions are based on violence and coercion, whereas drug peddlers engage in voluntary trade. While drug peddlers do engage in morally blameworthy activities, it turns out either that the bad acts that drug peddlers do are the result of interferences in their businesses by politicians - or, politicians engage in the same kind of acts but on a much larger scale.
Dr. James Stacey Taylor joins us from Department of Philosophy at The College of New Jersey.
