Vicious circle number one…
Here are five other vicious cycles:
Invade a country —> Destroy the country —> “Well, we can’t leave now.” —> Repeat
Government redistribution —> Poverty increases —> Government redistribution —> Poverty increases —> Repeat
Government failure –> Increase their budget –> Government failure —> Increase their budget —> Repeat
Republicans win –> Government grows —> Democrats win —> Government grows –> Repeat
Fed prints money —> wrecks the economy —> Fed prints more money —> wrecks the economy —> Repeat
There’s only ONE DOOR out of these vicious cycles:
Liberty. Voluntary interactions. No aggressive force. Sound money. Free markets.
There are no shortcuts. There are no work-arounds. There are no backroads. We either leave the vicious cycles, or we do not.
Government will continue to squeeze the life out of its citizens until (and not a moment sooner) the desire for Liberty dominates.
