Why I’m Not a Capital L Libertarian

ProfessorBainbridge.com ®

I just read Professor Bainbridge’s blog on the Vick prosecution. He rejects Skip Oliva’s pure libertarian view that dogs, like all animals, are nothing more than property and the government should not concern itself with their treatment.

Bainbridge embraces, as I do, Steve Verdon’s contrary viewpoint. Bainbridge quotes Edmond Burke as saying there is a point at which forebearance ceases to be a virtue.

In other words, dog fighting is beyond the pale. In a civilized society, yes it is.
