The make up of a neighborhood is the business of those people who live their by their own choice, not the governments.
The government’s problem-reaction-solution strategy to buy votes was summed up best by the late libertarian Harry Browne: “The government is good at one thing. It knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say, ‘See if it weren’t for the government, you wouldn’t be able to walk.’”

But humans, not just Americans, often make housing choices that don’t advance the government’s definition of diversity. Is it the government’s job to deny those choices and impose its idea of appropriate diversity? Read more…
