LIBERTARIAN: Satisfying others for “certificates of appreciation” AKA “GREED” is good

Heritage Foundation (Yes, “Boooo”) is adopting the Tom Woods’ patented “free ebook for your email” strategy with “9 Ways Socialism Will Morally Bankrupt America”. Liked the proverbial “stopped clock” that’s right twice a day, the did a good job nailing the problems with “socialism”. If I had a critique it would be that it didn’t defend “Greed is Good” (because it motivates humans to cooperate regardless of other factors). I like the metaphor that “money” is just “certificates of appreciation” from our fellow human beings whom we have satisfied. We need “greedy rich people”, as long as they don’t get their “certificates” by force or fraud that they commit or the Gooferment commits for them. Seems so simple.
