“Hey, hey, ho, ho, laissez faire’s the way to go!”

I attended the Walk for Capitalism in Los Angeles on Dec. 2, along with about 25 other people. The march began with some minor problems (the sky threatened rain at the time we were supposed to start) but it went off without a hitch. There were many flags, and a handful of signs – my favorite said “To Earn Is Human”; another said “Laissez-Faire Capitalism: Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” We marched downtown on Figueroa Boulevard, past L.A.’s World Trade Center, and on the way back stopped for lunch where a seminar broke out (rather common with libertarians). All in all a fun time, and a chance to meet new friends. Only one newspaper, L.A. Weekly, covered the event, but perhaps next year, with more publicity and preparation, it will attract more attention.
