Gogol....

He talks about everything, touches lightly on everything, he says everything he has filched out of books brightly and picturesquely, but he hasn't got any of it in his head; and you see afterwards that a talk with a humble merchant who knows nothing but his own business but does know that thoroughly and by experience, is better than all these chatterboxes.
Philosopher N. Gogol wrote this in the mid 19th Century. But it reminds me so clearly of the arrogance of government and their faith in themselves to make mega decisions that are believed to be better or more worthy of consideration than the everyday decisions of millions.

The arrogance of socialist economic policy, that is the core of the current resident of the Whitehouse and whose empty soaring rhetoric has caused former sensible people to worship this beast, will prove to be the undoing of the millions that would have done a much better job in aggregate.
