There has never been a shortage of people eager to draw up blueprints for running other people’s lives. Envy used to be just a human failing, but today it is a major industry. Politicians, journalists and academics are all part of that industry, which some call "social justice." Liberalism is totalitarianism with a human face. It is amazing how many people still fall for the argument that, if life is unfair, the answer is to turn more money and power over to politicians. Since life has always been unfair, for thousands of years and in countries around the world, where does that lead us? When people are trying to see how far they can push things, that is the time to let them know that they have already pushed things too far.
