When government disappears, it’s not as if paradise will take its place. When governments are gone, other interests will take their place.
If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.
Not only our future economic soundness but the very soundness of our democratic institutions depends on the determination of our government to give employment to idle men.
The problem is that when government controls the economy, those who can influence government keep winning, and everybody else just stays the same.
