It’s terrifying to hear our power-hungry politicians proclaim that the current crisis is due to the fact that they aren’t authoritarian enough. On the lighter side, here some quotes I heard recently:
On political corruption: You can’t blame the dog for eating out of the trash, you have to hide the trash! – Mike Munger.
To blame this crisis on laissez faire is akin to blaming the death of a heroin junkie on exercise, eating right, and sobriety. – Don Boudreaux.
Hoping that our political class knows what to do to fix the mess we’re in is like opening the kitchen to a horde of three-year-olds and hoping that they fix dinner. – Me.
