Lessons on Government

Government is force. It takes money by force. It commands obedience by force. That government should use force in all kinds of social engineering and fanciful schemes defies the way good people live.

Ask yourself, the next time you hear of a government program, "Is this something that I would use lethal force to force my neighbors to pay for? And if they did not pay for it (through taxation) would I arrest them and put them in jail?"

The most reasonable assessment of any new government program must be from the perspective that someone will be forced to pay for it. That is why smaller government, government that governs least, not only supports freedom, but encourages prosperity and the way good people live - the way healthy people live.
