A Common Assumption on the Left and Its Contrapositive
I'm sure my fellow wingnuts have encountered people who point to the alleged benefits of a large-scale government program and claim that there is no way those benefits can be provided privately. The apparent assumption is that if something isn't run by a government, it can't be done on a large scale.
The contrapositive of that is: If something is large-scale, it is run by a government. That, in turn, means large corporations or religious organizations are governments. In other words, if your employer doesn't provide, for example, free condoms and if it is large enough for its condom purchases to count as “large scale,” then a government has banned contraception. As another example, in LeftWorld the Citizens United ruling means that governments that we have little control over are allowed to mess around in our political system. All this nonsense fits together.
By the way, why did the spell checker flag “contrapositive”?
