Today's Wibblinks 02/01/2012 (p.m.)


Posted from Diigo. The rest of my favorite links are here.

This just reads like the usual toxic nonsense that right-wingers spout: "only rich people are worthy of money, and taxes are theft". It's especially galling in a place like Hong Kong, where most of the population lives in subsidized housing, enjoys public healthcare, public education, public libraries, public transport, and enjoys a high standard of public safety thanks to a relatively modest level of taxation levied on some very rich people.

I always get the feeling that many Randroid types feel themselves to be John Galt if they have any business success in Hong Kong, without realizing just how much public largesse goes into that 'cheap' workforce they feel entitled to.
