#2. I now think good ideas should be mandatory.
This also seems like a self-evident idea, but I’ll spell it out for all the Paultards out there: in the free market people will make awful, terrible choices with their freedom. We have to stop that. There are better ways to organize the economy and that sometimes means making good ideas mandatory. Even if very few people actually think these are good ideas, they are. Democracy is the best way to make good but unpopular ideas viable.
