Mental Exercise

Here’s a mental exercise for everyone—name one government program in recorded history that’s been a success–on balance. Go ahead—name one. Just one government program that has made someone wealthier without making someone poorer; just one program by which a country’s citizens have benefited without the equivalent loss of independence or liberty or dignity. History is littered with the corpses of civilizations which have sacrificed their liberty and that of their progeny for a bowl of thin gruel. We are no different.
