I’m For The Free Market Unless It’s, You Know, Inconvenient

In the circles in which I travel, both physically and virtually, Techno-Libertarian memes have become sufficiently prevalent that it is considered Received Wisdom that top-down, legislation-based attempts to fight the spamdemic are doomed to failure.  I have therefore become slightly alarmed by encountering increasing numbers of non-denuncatory references to Christopher Caldwell’s recent Weekly Standard piece, in which he demands immediate government intervention to save him from his Inbox.  I’d like nothing better than to explain why Caldwell is an idiot, but Evan Kirchhoff has already done so.
