The fact that two of the

The fact that two of the greatest philosophers of all time, Plato and Aristotle, both "counseled the virtues of scaling down one's desires to fit what was moral and not unnatural" is completely ignored in this article. Instead, such things as charging interest (the practice which easily triples or quadruples the amount owed back to the lender) is condoned, even though Aristotle believed that education should teach people voluntarily to curb their rampant desires and thus lead them to limit their own accumulations of wealth. The reason as to why Rothbard considers such a practice as charging interest to be "moral and not unnatural" is completely ignored in the article - leaving me to wonder if I shouldn't ignore this article, and Rothbard himself, completely - except, of course, for those few ideas of his which I may condone.
