The Koch brothers as victims

March 27th, 2011 by Rick Drain

I’d be more impressed by the ‘libertarianism’ of the Koch brothers (and others like them) if they showed more interest in policies to get the government off everyone‘s back, to everyone‘s benefit, rather than just getting the government off their billionaire backs, for their own private benefit, in ways that harm other citizens.

The Koch brothers see themselves as the victims. I disagree.

If one looks, one can see the difference between principled libertarianism and dressed-up selfishness.
