Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Rebecca Black Re-Revisited

Time once again for our usual (albeit a bit delayed) midday Wednesday feature.

Jeffrey Tucker of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and scholameister/author of The Chant Cafe -- now there's a combination you don't see every day -- waxes eloquently on the libertarian allegory, in the video that has earned nearly 100 million hits.

Lovers of liberty are often drawn to such scenarios because they highlight the unknowability of the future, the unpredictability of human choice, and the way in which the intentions of the planners (in this case, the producers and writers) are easily upended by consumer choice, which is the driving force of economic progress.

But for all of that, as this clip will demonstrate, there is so much more.

David, this is high-larious. Jeffery Tucker's piece had me snorting out loud.
