Quote of the day....

“In the hands of a skillful indoctrinator, the average student not only thinks what the indoctrinator wants him to think . . . but is altogether positive that he has arrived at his position by independent intellectual exertion. This man is outraged by the suggestion that he is the flesh-and-blood tribute to the success of his indoctrinators.”

–William F. Buckley Jr., Up From Liberalism (1959)-
I am one that will never trust the government, since in these kind of organizations, it is much too easy to hide inside the veil and be both guiltless and not responsible for actions. Actions in these organizations revolves around 'delivering the goods' to constituents and providing short term benefits sometimes at gigantic long-term costs.

But even more insidious is that people are trained to believe in these institutions since there are no other choices. It is truly a horrible existence being held hostage to irresponsible government that will never be able to deliver all of the things that they have promised over a lifetime to deliver.
