Regarding the sentiment that "economic policy proposals whose alleged tendency to benefit the poor is so implausible that those who support them bear a heavy burden of justifying their professed belief that the proposals are consistent with the preferential option for the poor," it needs to be pointed out that it is the RC church that supports a minimum wage policy that all but marxist economists agree directly hurts the poor.

While Ayn Rand does not "hate the poor," she did hate government meddling. And the RC church apparently loves the poor so much that it supports policies, like the minimum wage, that keep them poor and other policies that make well-off people poor.

Quite right, a significant criticism it was not, even if it could be
called a criticism. Thanks for visiting. I greatly admire your blog.

OK, Steve. Not all.
