I, Pencil

Okay, I read the article “I, Pencil” referenced in the post below (Greenhut – Liberate Public Schools ). I said I’d post it if it is good – it’s better than good, it’s excellent. I was amazed to see that it was written in 1958 by Leonard E. Read. It very simply and eloquently explains why free markets must be kept free and why, even some industries we think of as government-oriented (he uses mail as his example) should be left to the free market. Wish I’d met Mr. Read.
