Big government killed the American Indian
People have quickly forgotten that it wasn't "the white man," Christianity, "Western culture" or another PC boogeyman who killed off the American Indian, it was government's unchecked monopoly on violence, its ability to transfer land and wealth on behalf of others and, finally, its power to declare you its ward and attempt to provide for your everyday needs. As Clare Booth Luce warned us, if you believe government can be a great and good father to the people, just take a look at what it's done to and for the American Indian.
Also of note, among several good entries, is one yesterday: the long-known fact that the state-school teachers know their own schools suck and send their kids to private ones.
