Fair Trade in Action


At the WTO talks in Cancun, Bureaucrash activists set up a "fair trade vs free trade" soda stand, allowing thirsty protesters to decide whether they wanted to pay jacked up "fair" soda prices. Most, surprise surprise, did not. Some "anarchists" then enacted their own form of trade barrier-cum-censorship by forming a human chain around the 'Crashers. I guess this is the version of "anarchism" where all the things governments do are actually OK, so long as they're instead done by black-clad mobs imbued with superior social conscience. Maybe we should rename it "sanctimoniocracy."
