Taking market fundamentalism to its wackiest extremes

Today’s edition of [1]Radical Right Reality Check [1] provides a rather amazing example of just how far the so-called “libertarian” think tanks are prepared to take their worship of market fundamentalism.

Recently, one of the local conservative think tankers went so far as to feature a guest on his radio show who seriously argues that women from poor countries who get purchased as “mail-order brides” are better off for it.

To quote: “the end result is usually in the best interest of the women who seek a better life for themselves and later for their children.”

As you can read here [1], we are not making this up.
