Objectivists Speak Out Against ObamaCare

On his Facebook page, Andrew Bernstein makes this stirring pledge against ObamaCare:
"If the government takes over health care, I will refuse to buy their package, refuse to pay the fine imposed, and make them arrest me. I will broadcast my refusal to cave to socialism on my website, on Facebook, to my students, in my lectures, and on the radio. I will fight this in the courts--or will the DC Fascists suspend the right to trial by jury? I suspect--and hope--that millions of Americans will do the same."

Jared Rhoads of the Lucidicus Project has a new OpEd, "All Talk, No Debate".

Don Watkins of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights discusses the basic moral issue, "You Are Not Your Brother's Health Care Provider".

Jeff Scialabba of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights discusses: "Obama's Flawed Prescription for Health Care".

Reminder: It may be illegal in some circumstances to advocate someone else perform an illegal act. (I am not a lawyer and have no specialized knowledge about this.)

Note that Bernstein is announcing what he plans on doing (in the tradition of American civil disobedience to unjust laws). He also says he suspects and hopes others will also make a similar decision, but he does not explicitly advocate that other break the law.

Here at FIRM, we do not advocate that others perform violent illegal acts.
