Mises had written, "There is a world of difference between a man who risks his life and property for a good cause and the man who sacrifices them without benefitting society in any way."
Now which should we believe that politicians fall under?
Which should economists fall under?
Mises picks up again with, "Everything that serves to preserve the social order is moral; everything that is detrimental to it is immoral."
Would most citizens view austrian economists as the first or the latter off of this statement?
Is then perception reality or just a faux pas?
