“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

When Labor Unions go wrong


National Center Blog provides insight into a failure of separation of union and state:

Parents may be fined for helping their own son:
...special education laws are so complex that children need experts, not untrained parents, looking out for their rights.
Whose fault is that, then? The government's or the lawyer's union?

As Amy Ridenour points out:
The government would do better to can the laws saying people need professional help to fight the government and instead run a government people don't need to fight.
