1 comment to THE FASCIST SOUL OF NEOCONSERVATIVE STATE CRAFT
Rand Paul was clear and principled.
What stood out is that the government official to whom he was addressing his comments and questions clearly could not understand what Rand Paul was getting out.
She definitely did not in any way comprehend why anyone could even think the way that Paul was. Her response: But all of these regulations have been “bi-partisan,” and thus no reason for arguing their lack of justification. Because being “bi-partisan,” it must be good for the country. Isn’t that what democratic consensus is all about?
And the chairman of the committee’s comment? Well, he is sorry that Rand Paul has been having plumbing problems!
It is an uphill fight when people do not even understand what a lack of freedom entails.
Interaction of individuals, possessing different knowledge and different views, is what constitutes the life of thought. The growth of reason is a social process based on the existence of such differences It is of its essence that its results cannot be predicted, that we cannot know which views will assist this growth and which will not. — F. A. Hayek
