Ain’t it the truth

Glenn digs up another most excellent Heinlein quote:

Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

More comfortable governors and leaders, too. Hell, somebody oughta dig up Heinlein and make him President. Near as I can make out, the man never said a wrong thing. And he’d be a damned sight better than the trainwreck we have squatting in the Oval Office now.

  1. I wonder where it will end.

    When an entity, be it a biological construct such as a human being or a sociological construct such as a society, stops growing, it starts dieing. Metabolism becomes Catabolism.

    The USA grew, and prospered, through the 1800’s and early 1900’s because people had some place to go. Someplace to get away from the choke-hold of local government.

    Manifest Destiny, and all that.

    Now? Not so much. The liberals have fouled their nests and have no where else to go.

    If they would actually LEARN something when they move, we might survive. But they don’t. They kill the economy where they live and then move someplace better (better being it doesn’t have the economy killing laws) and then start bitching about the fact that the place that they moved to doesn’t have the regulations that killed the place they moved away from.

    I’m afraid for my country.
