I have to disagree with Rand on this. I generally oppose any kind of “economic reform” that involves raising any new taxes, passing any new laws, or creating any new government agencies. But all wealth and resources that are possessed by the state amount to ill-gotten gains achieved through taxes, civil asset forfeiture, fines, confiscation, currently monopolies, etc, etc, etc. Plus, the current situation involves a government-induced depression where the ruling class has cleaned up and the upper middle class has gone on vacation and done so on the backs of the petite bourgeoisie, proletariat, and lumpenproletariat. “Stimulus checks” are merely a pathetically meager form of reparations. It looks like we need more of the kind of grassroots, direct action “stimulus” we’ve observed in recent months.
