Quote of the Month

Writes Mr. Michael Anissimov over at his weblog More Right:

Whether democracies inevitably collapse into dictatorships remains to be seen, but the first part, the association of democracy and big government, is historically obvious. No traditional state had a government the size of which even vaguely approaches that of today’s. In broad outlines, there are two major differences in the system of government between today’s and that prior to the French Revolution: 1) democracy instead of monarchy and 2) big government instead of small government. The other differences (such as the alleged moral superiority of democracy) are just commentary.
