What If U2 Had Been Libertarians?

As their "best" or at least (probably) most recognizable song, "Where The Streets Have No Name", it is something I simply cannot listen to without thinking of something like the Periclean speech. To my ear, the song is about universalism, and the virtues of individual risk, entrepreneurial effort and achievement. I find it nauseatingly incomprehensible that Lefties can listen to this and think about something as trivial and narrow-minded as mere income inequality.


You have to have a shitty, ugly little mind to listen to something like this and think about how much more money your rich neighbours make than you do.

  1. Heard of this song, but never paid attention, for me the Libertarian U2 song is "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"
