...about the reality that liberals now do more or less hold the levers of power? Walter Williams has an interesting point about what has happened to blacks--arguably the most impacted group by our governments (federal, state and local) over time.
Put gently, while adverse actions like slavery and Jim Crow discrimination (both in South and North) could not keep the black man from advancing, theoretically "affirmative" actions like the War on Poverty and Affirmative Action have.
So what do we do about possible liberal moves in government? As Professor Williams notes, the answers aren't in government. The answers lie in family life, the church, learning a profession, and real education. In other words, we counteract the malignant influence of the state by living like free men as much as we can.
