This guy is absolutely right about property rights. The government shouldn’t be allowed to force business owners to prohibit smoking on their premises, but he’s missing the more pertinent question. If non-smokers have the right to breath clean air on their property, shouldn’t they have the right to breath clean air on public property for which they’re forced to pay (e.g. parks, sidewalks)?
When do-gooders started banning smoke in bars and restaurants, they completely missed the philosophical boat. They should have been arguing for smoke bans in public places, not private places where a lot of people go.
The smoking argument is crucial for understanding freedom and I welcome all to read my post: Why Smokers Suck!
