Reason has re-published an editorial by Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune, entitled “This Is Why America Should Take More Syrian Refugees.”
The entirety of the editorial can be summed up by the subtitle: “We contributed to the problem. But we've barely allowed any in.”
I ain’t we. I didn’t contribute to any problem, unless you want to blame the victim of armed robbery for the further criminal acts of the robber.
Reason is the monthly print magazine of "free minds and free markets." It covers politics, culture, and ideas through a provocative mix of news, analysis, commentary, and reviews. Reason provides a refreshing alternative to right-wing and left-wing opinion magazines by making a principled case for liberty and individual choice in all areas of human activity. (Emphasis added)
“Individual choice.” I don’t expect an editorial writer for the Chicago Tribune to understand this. However, it would be nice if the home of “free minds and free markets” understood what “individual choice” actually meant.
It would be nice, but I don’t expect this either.
