“The energy and the logic on the right wants Big Government dismantled. Very simply, it has been tried for almost 80 years, it does not work, it cannot work — not if you accept that there is a human nature and that it will always assert itself.”
Really, it just “does not work”? Like, at all? So, everything has just been rotten for us since 1933?
Economically speaking, from about 1953 to 1968 was about as good as it got for the USA, or really anywhere in the world. And, of course, “Big Government” did win us a little thing called World War II.
I’m not a big fan of “Big Government”. I think FDR was and is rather overrated as a President. But you can’t just ignore history.
