Why We Let ThemPosted: August 24, 2011
Thus, agencies like the Food and Drug Administration are not only credited with “producing” food safety but also with reining in an irresponsible free market that would otherwise sell poisoned baby food.
I hold an opinion. I think that people will not give up their State-issued chains until they fear government more than anarchy. As long as people think that we can throttle back our government to it’s Constitutional limits, we will remain slaves and government will only grow more brutishly powerful.
Even when we reach North-Korean/Cuban poverty levels, people will still be convinced that anarchy would worsen their condition. The farther into slavery a society sinks, the less rebellion.
The answer lies not in revolution–that’ll never happen–but in escape. Escape will require a new, hitherto undiscovered frontier. And the escapers will be people who are far more afraid of government than the unknown.
