The Never-Ending "Business of Centralization" - Reason Magazine

The legacy of 75 years of government meddling in the transactions of common people flow from the the demonic New Deal invention that rested upon the the idea that government is actually capable of both having the necessary information to make these decisions and of actually executing these interventions as planned. Both concepts, central to this Marxist ideal of centraqlized government economic decision making are false....
FDR wasn’t kidding about the law’s reach. Through the creation of more than 500 “codes of fair competition,” the NIRA sought to micro-manage even the smallest and most local aspects of the American economy, mandating everything from the price of food to the cost of having a shirt hemmed. As justification for this unprecedented power grab, Congress cited its constitutional authority to “regulate commerce...among the several states.”
The absurdity that centralized decision making, a basic pillar in Communism and those that desire power and control, is that it just does not work. So why is it that Democrats and Progressives desire the capacity to control such parts of people's lives?
