The government is good at one thing. It knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say, “See if it weren’t for the government, you wouldn’t be able to walk”. – Harry Browne
The hallmark of well-intentioned statists (Republicans and Democrats) is seeing only direct causes and effects, but ignoring root causes and secondary effects. For almost every problem we see in humanity, you can usually trace it back to governments being the root cause of its exacerbation. This doesn’t mean that no government equals no human problems, it just means that these problems won’t grow as large and frequent. Freedom offers self-corrective mechanisms.
