"It is immoral to be in opposition of the market system and not live (like the Unabomber) in a hut isolated from itQue dizer dos grandes defensores da escola pública que sempre tiveram os seus filhos num colégio privado com nome estrangeiro na zona de Cascais e até foram ministros de governos de esquerda?
But there is worse:
It is even more, much more immoral to claim virtue without fully living with its direct consequences
As we saw with the interventionistas, a certain class of theoretical people can despise the details of reality, and completely so. If you believe that you are right in theory, you can completely ignore the real world –and vice versa. And you don’t really care how your ideas affect others because your ideas make you belong to some virtuous status that is impervious to how it affects others.
If your private life conflicts with your intellectual opinion, it cancels your intellectual ideas, not your private life
If your private actions do not generalize then you cannot have general ideas"
