Francis DeLuca with The Civitas Institute joined us on the show to discuss what happens to communities when the government grows. When government acts paternalist it destroys civil society, something which has always distinguished the United States from other Western countries.
We need to stop asking the government to accomplish the duties society, religious and nonprofit groups has done prior to the government taking over.
We discussed the decreasing value of money since the creation of the Federal Reserves in 1913. The FED was instituted to save the dollar but it has, in fact, destroyed it.
Larence Vance had a piece discussing the federal drinking laws and tobacco laws. The age of majority may be 18, but adults in the US are not able to purchase alcohol or smoke until they are 21. We discussed how we live in a relatively free society, which is different than living in a free society.
