His Soon-to-Be Excellence Arrested for Non-Crime

And forced by popular nanny statist piety into "apologizing for his 'error in judgment' and asking forgiveness for the disgrace he brought upon the Church" — Future San Francisco archbishop apologizes for 'disgrace' caused by arrest.

"I pray that God, in His inscrutable wisdom, will bring some good out of this," he said; some good that could come out of this would be to follow the counsel of Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. set forth in this article — Legalize Drunk Driving.

I don't think I can agree with Lew Rockwell here because I think his argument goes against the Libertarian principle of not harming others. I think it's a fact that drunks and drunk drivers in particular are poor judges of what dangers they pose to others. Unfortunately once someone's in a wheelchair or a paraplegic for life, a simple sorry or even monetary restitution will not make him or her whole again.

I do not understand how Lew Rockwell can make maintaining property rights a central tenet of his philosophy, and then condemn the state for doing what they can to minimize the irreversible loss of property rights. To my mind his screed is the fruit of a fanatic mind, That insists on cutting off its nose to spite its face.

Since people who are angry or sad or extremely excited may pose a danger to others, then the government would be justified in testing us for the level of dopamine (or whatever chemical substance is responsible for our altered mood in our brain). Perhaps people who criticize government are those who are most likely to cause accidents.
