I do not understand the liberal love affair with government. Government is inefficient and it bullies people. Had a business engaged in the same conduct as the City of San Francisco, it would have apologized profusely or found itself flamed to death. A government, however, can act with impunity, because it holds the power.
I’m not advocating an anarchic system without government. I’m just saying that people ought to think very carefully before they vest more and more power in government’s hands. History shows repeatedly the truth behind Thoreau’s dictum that “That government is best which governs least.”
