“That government is best which governs least.” – Thomas Paine. These words, written two centuries ago, still resonate today. While natural laws against fraud are ignored, establishment pundits prevaricate and spin to justify massive state expenditures, triggering a growing realization that the seats of centralized government power are vulnerable to corruption and occupation by well-funded interests. Expropriations via taxation are increasingly redistributed to the rich rather than needy populations and the political scions of socialism are revealed for what they are – puppets of corrupt multinational institutions. Did you seriously think you were going to get a cut?
