I believe that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty and the democratic form is as bad as any of the other forms.
H. L. Mencken
It's easy to let others grow our food or build our vehicles. I carpenter for people whose time is better spent working on their own specialty. It makes sense to specialize. If I had to eat only what I could grow or butcher, I'd probably starve. But each of us mostly chooses which specialties to farm out and which to retain, except for the production of security. Our government has a monopoly on that production. Sadly, our government has, with the limitless power of that monopoly, branched out into charity, medicine, retirement income--even building cars and mortgaging homes. Tea-bag all you want, tyranny is here and it ain't going away.
