What Most People Apparently Believe

There will never come a day — ever — when the political class decides that there are numerous enough laws, enough taxes, and enough control mechanisms over people’s lives. They will constantly continue to create more and more of these things, without end. That is the intrinsic nature of government. They will continue this until society becomes unworkable and collapses; until the human race no longer exists.

Nevertheless, I think that when politicians, having been voted into office via a democratic process — and the unelected agency bureaucrats who carry out their edicts — are afforded latitude to do whatever they feel is in our best interest, then we all benefit. Thus it follows that those who oppose this system are dangerous radicals, and obvious lunatics.
