The Big Government We Love to Hate
Exploring the Roots of Political Malaise
For thousands of years, peoples of the world have assumed that government is society’s natural problem-solving agency. This blind “cultural presumption” drives the pressure for ever-larger government. No matter how badly leaders and policies perform, the public keeps coming back for more.
In this insightful new book, political scientist Dr. James L. Payne details the power of this unexamined faith, showing how it propels even the finest minds into naïve contradictions.
There is a ray of hope, however. In recent times, growing numbers of libertarians have transcended the blind faith in government and are working toward a future of ‘neighborly’ relationships.
