I Wonder Why

Expanding government oversight into more of our lives slowly destroys liberty and degrades society by uncoupling the incentives that make us morally responsible and strong. I recommend we explore different ways to organize ourselves. Perhaps society would work better if we had a free market in justice and competitive security services instead of relying on government monopolies. Giving incompetent and monopolistic politicians more of our money and responsibility feels like giving the hangman more rope and asking for tighter nooses.
