The fact that the right is moral rather than legal is not an impediment to its existence. The market fundamentalist religion that has seized hold of the US and has its people by the throat is a remarkably useless and irresponsible faith based enterprise.

When it has killed enough people it will be terminated by the survivors and it will not re-emerge until the generational memory of those survivors and their children, has dissipated. It is a mistake of epic proportions and it will generate a catastrophe to match.

I observe only that the followers of the religion, the free-market fundamentalists, are largely libertarian and remarkably free of any limitations of morality. Social darwinism is their guiding light. It is going to end badly? Yes. Do I feel contempt for the followers of the religion? Yes.
