Mandeville LA - It is with great joy that I (and the ghosts of the Founding Fathers) watched Part I of IV of the Abbeville Institute's groundbreaking video "Is America Too Big"? presented by Professor Donald Livingston and author Kirkpatrick Sale. The video picks up where Livingston's book - ReThinking The American Union - and his radio interviews with Mike Church, left off: adding a visual component to the issue of scale and our governments. Mike has dozens of transcripts on this site about this issue including here and here and what to do about it. We invite your comments.
"Whatever capital you divert to the support of a shiftless and good-for-nothing person is so much diverted from some other employment, and that means from somebody else. I would spend any conceivable amount of zeal and eloquence if I possessed it to try to make people grasp this idea. Capital is force. If it goes one way it cannot go another. If you give a loaf to a pauper you cannot give the same loaf to a laborer. Now this other man who would have got it but for the charitable sentiment which bestowed it on a worthless member of society is the Forgotten Man." - William Graham Sumner, The Forgotten Man
