Protesters urge Ford to defy reality and economic facts

Doug Ford may not be the most charming or erudite politician to grace the halls of political power in Ontario, and he has certainly gained the negative attention of media, political, and academic intellectuals across Canada.

One thing in his favor however is that he apparently understands a fundamental problem in modern welfare state politics: out of control government spending coupled with unrealistic regulation of the productive sector of the economy.

So, when protesters come out to challenge the regulatory rollback of stupid anti-reality notions that employees must be paid more in wages and benefits than market prices have determined as a result of mutual trade between employers and employees, we should hope Ford remains firm in his convictions.

Any weakening in resolve would further encourage the rule of society by the mob rather than by trade for mutual benefit.
