How Would We Really Treat Mutants?

20th January 2013

Bryan Caplan has the answer.

Of course, popular acceptance wouldn’t extend to mutants who openly embraced or acted upon an ideology of mutant supremacy.  But as long as mutants spoke like loyal citizens of their nations of origin, we’d treat them better, not worse, than normal.  We’d fawn on mutants even if they were arrogant jerks.  See the folks on the covers of our supermarket tabloids.
