ROTHBARD’S GHETTO ETHICS VS WESTERN SOVEREIGN ETHICS
Rothbardian (jewish) traditional ethics require only voluntary exchange. Under Jewish ethics, usury, baiting into moral hazard, verbal fraud, blackmail, bribery, rent seeking, corruption are ethical because they are voluntary. Volition is the only test. The ethics of “What can i get away with?” The low trust ethics of the middle east.
Under western (germanic) traditional ethics all of these are unethical, because they violate reciprocity – which aside from volition, requires warrantied due diligence that a transfer is also productive, fully informed, and free of negative externality. The ethics of “i have gotten away with nothing.” The high trust ethics of northern europeans.
So when you dont understand something ask for clarification. Dont shame me for not writing in crayon. And do one better, and assume you’re abysmally ignorant before you assume I err.
