Had The Chilean Miners Been Teabaggers

Had the Chilean miners truly subscribed to the tea party view of the world, they would have first rejected any rescue attempt as a big government bailout, perpetuating the moral hazard problem of miners who went underground knowing full well the risks of their actions! Then, having refused rescue, they would also have ruled out collective action to survive, since that sounds like socialism. Only then would they have killed each other.

-Eric Liu, Author and former Clinton White House adviser
