The Worst Person In The World

Let's play a game: libertarian professor of economics, or crazy man on street corner? by @DavidOAtkins
Economics Professor Bryan Caplan.
1. As I've argued in detail here, poor healthy adults in the First World are largely undeserving. Indeed, few are even objectively poor; just look at the many luxuries the American poor typically enjoy. 
2. People who used to be healthy adults in the First World are also largely undeserving. As long as they were healthy enough to work for a couples of decades, the vast majority could have easily saved enough (or purchased enough insurance, annuities, etc.) to protect themselves from unemployment, accidents, sickness, old age, and other perennial troubles.
Keep your filthy undeserving paws off my bitcoins!
