Quote of the Month (July)

Writes Dr. Michael S. Rozeff over at LewRockwell.com:

No matter what labels we attach to the national government of America, that government has gone steadily downhill for a long, long time. It does almost nothing right. Its intrusions here and overseas are abominable and grow ever-larger. It multiplies its evils continually, seeking out new ones. We have even reached a point where the government in its vast ignorance and hubris keeps raising the risks of nuclear war and World War 3. The government’s meddling serves only narrow business interests, oligarchs, bureaucrats, power-hungry psychopaths, busybodies and opportunists. Its interventions corrupt the people, dumb them down, and make them helpless, dependent, mindless and lazy. Whatever progress has been made by Americans has been in spite of the malefactions of their democratic government or whatever the appropriate labels for this monstrosity are.

Americans should undermine their “democracy”. They should assault it. It needs assaulting. It needs a strong dose of desecration because it has taken on an entirely undeserved role as a sacred institution. The next marches on Washington should be to downsize the government drastically, to end rules and regulations, to cut out bureaus, to end programs, to lay off bureaucrats, and to eliminate whole departments. The New Deal and the subsequent growth of government built upon it need to be understood as extremely harmful to Americans and something to be repudiated. The country needs to engage in a very, very different kind of restructuring of ideas and government, or else continue going downhill.
