America's Ruling Class vs. The "Country Class": On Laws

Angelo M. Codevilla from the July 2010 - August 2010 issue of the American Spectator.

"Because modern laws are primarily grants of discretion, all anybody has to know about them is whom they empower."

"Laws and regulations nowadays are longer than ever because length is needed to specify how people will be treated unequally."

"So, ever-greater taxes and intrusive regulations are the main wrenches by which the American people can be improved (and, yes, by which the ruling class feeds and grows)."

No comments:

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
