A government of the worst, by the worst…

The more a society moves in the direction of socialism, the more it relies on the coercive powers of the state. As such coercion becomes justified, it tends to expand at the expense of individual freedom and individual conscience. Government plans replace individual plans; the government claims a greater share of private wealth to distribute money as it sees fit; ideological propaganda becomes more pervasive from government institutions, especially in the schools; and the economy becomes progressively more lethargic, increasingly strangled by governmental edicts, regulations, and bureaucrats. Government becomes more and more a government of the worst, by the worst, and for the worst. That’s what socialism delivers.
