A last shot before slipping into irrelevancy......
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The people that shaped the "revolution" (the replacement of 50's Statist Conservatism with 60's Statist Progressivism) are now in their 60's and approaching their 70's. Who can blame them for yet another regurgitation of how wonderful they were before they are shuffled off to homes and forgotten? One more shrill yowl about how they were so right about everything, unleashing new forms of Force hither and yon.

And the old "whoops, I guess we were wrong about the whole drug thing". Well, drugs weren't the only thing you were wrong about. Being preachy, left statist idiots doesn't enter on the correct side of the ledger. The revolution for REAL freedom we needed was rolling back the tide of unfunded entitlements. YES, shake off the shackles of repugnant Statist laws that impinge on human action, but don't rot the culture with socialism and non-accountability. Being free comes with responsibility, not passing the bill to someone else. The 30's and 40's forged making everyone's pocketbooks part of the treasury, any net earnings were merely a loan callable at any time. This MIGHT have been fine, noxious as it is, but when good behaviors declined and bad behaviors were encouraged in the 60's, the societal cost was massive. All I get from the 60's revolution is everyone got to do "their thing", "whatever your bag is, man" yet the responsibility was collective. THE TWO CANNOT GO TOGETHER IN ANY WAY.

So, YES, end brutish State interruption in personal behavior but make the responsibility for bad choices fall on the individual, not the collective. Any subsidy from one to another to mitigate the other's bad choices has to be completely voluntary.

The 60's were a selfish, spoiled child period of having to get your way and hang the cost on everyone else.
