It has come to my attention that there are rumors floating around that I am a harsh critic of capitalism, a Catholic radical.
This is an urban legend, and nothing could be further from the truth. I am a disciple of Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman, not of Dorothy Day or G K Chesterton. I have long valued the free market and seen collectivism and false compassion as the enemy of my selfish desires, and note that when I say “selfish” I mean that as a noble thing.
What’s that you say? There is a long trail, on paper and online, to the contrary? As recently as yesterday?
Nope. Not true. Urban legend. La la la la.
