A Particularly Good Definition of Freedom

August 11, 2009

“Consider the following definition of freedom: the absence of monopoly.” – Arnold Kling

This explains why those perhaps in Hong Kong (i.e. China) may have more freedom than Americans.  There is no viable exit opportunity from the American political system.  Sort of like there was no viable exit opportunity from the English causing the revolution.  Even if I leave America they will still tax me unlike most other countries America taxes on nationality and not just place of residence.
