“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” – Ayn Rand
Many politicians and ‘leaders’ are truly sick. Their sociopathic narcissism causes the masses (or at least themselves) to believe that he or she has a superior ability to spend other people’s money. Politicians also hold a worldview based on of scarcity. Politics is really the art and science of allocating scarcity, while making decisions about the collection and redistribution of resources within an economy and among its people.
This same truth applies with child support, the Bradley Amendment and all statute worldwide.
