Few do it better than Sally Kohn.
Our pleasure! Here’s what she’s up to today:
It starts off with a bang:
You may have heard that the government is forcing businesses not to discriminate. It isn’t. If you chose to run a business, you have to follow the laws. If you don’t, that’s a choice—and you choose to suffer the consequences.
But her conclusion is the best part:
In the United States, private businesses get all kinds of government support—a functional monetary system, police that safeguard private property, roads that help deliver customers and goods, public schools that educate workers, telecommunications infrastructure, legal protections against copyright and patent infringement, tax benefits for business expenses and employee health care, legal shields for owners and more. No one is forcing businesses to take advantage of all those benefits, nor forcing you to start a business to begin with nor forcing you to do so in a state with non-discrimination laws or in the United States to begin with.
Don’t like following the laws that apply to businesses—including serving all customers equally? Then don’t start a business. That’s your choice.
Lay down, Sally. Before you hurt yourself.
To be fair, it’s easy to lose track of your convictions when you keep changing them.
We doubt it, too.
Poor dear. What are we going to to with her?
