Jay's Tuesday Free Enterprise Quote

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC

"The worship of the state is the worship of force.  There is no more dangerous menace to civilization than a government of incompetent, corrupt, or vile men.  The worst evils which mankind ever had to endure were inflicted by bad governments.  The state can be and has often been in the course of history the main source of mischief and disaster."

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973)

Unknown when this was said, but it is as true now as then, or ever!

Gubments killed more people in the 20th century than anything other than disease.  And many gubments killed their own people, not only those of other countries with which they were at war.  Many gubments were at war with their own citizens!

And the real problem when gubment "officials" think THEY are the state, and should be worshiped, is that their self-perceived power needs to grow and change into more, and then more.  And, as Dr. von Mises says, they become vile.

When a sweeping bill, an all-controlling bill, a totally-dominating bill like "health" care is enacted, it comes with its first puny bureaucracies attached.  I have heard that the recent "health" care bill has over 200 bureaucracies already built in.  They will need to grow.  More bureaucracies will need to be attached. 

And total worship will be required or we will NOT participate. 

Those who deny their worship will be put away.  HISTORY HAS NEVER, EVER, EVER BEEN DIFFERENT.

Think this through.  Reading the above von Mises quote, does anyone think all those "officials" will be competent, incorruptible and pure?  Please.  Like the song says, "meet the new boss, same as the old boss."  Except this new boss has bigger, more vicious teeth, is more dominant, can do permanent harm and is lying from the start.  But we had to pass the bill in order to find out what was in it...  That was said by someone who DEMANDS worship. 

Don't think otherwise.

It would really, really behoove all of us to read the lyrics to this "The Who" song:

"We Won't Get Fooled Again"

Speaking of worship, the business of Religion may just compete with the Gubment in the killing of people through the ages.  How many wars were fought because of that cause?

Way Ahead:)

Jay,

Sometimes it's very difficult to distinguish between leaders and the state. Often the leaders define the state. :)

We are in the middle of a religious war Jason.  Don't think it otherwise.  But true religion does not cause wars.

Leaders always define the state Steve.
