Some more David Chilton

Another piece from the article I quoted from the other day.

Perhaps the most ridiculous economic fallacy of the feminist vision is the doctrine of 'comparable worth' in which various demagogues take it upon themselves to declare the absolute, fixed monetary value of certain occupations. Someone in 'industry x' works just as hard as someone in 'industry y', yet is paid less. This monstrous injustice must be righted and avenged immediately, the political aspirants intone solemnly, affecting a piously concerned expression for the tv cameras. That this utter fraud is taken seriously by anyone over the age of twelve is positively mind-boggling; that apparently all the representatives of the media wholeheartedly embrace it is convincing evidence that the inmates are running the asylum.
