Quote of the Week

Lew Rockwell, writing about the government Head Start program, puts his finger on a key problem with modern thought processes:

What in the world would happen if the Head Start program were abolished? That we should even be asked to explain such a thing highlights the dangers of these government programs. Once they are in place, people somehow can't imagine a world without them. If the federal government had a program to supply watches to everyone, those who said that watches should be supplied on the free market would be regarded as cruel and reckless, exhibiting an unwarranted faith in the power of the free market.
