“The more subsidized it is, the less free it is”

“The more subsidized it is, the less free it is. What is known as ‘free education’ is the least free of all, for it is a state-owned institution; it is socialized education — just like socialized medicine or the socialized post office — and cannot possibly be separated from political control.”

— Frank Chodorov
(1887-1966) American author, publisher 1948

[Chodorov wrote that over 65 years ago. Why have we gotten stupider? Subsidized oil. Subsidized farmer. There isn’t a farm commodity going that doesn’t have a tax cut, price support or other subsidy. What corporation pays the advertised tax rate? You can be damn sure the middle income worker does. Laws of Economics don’t change, that’s why they’re “laws”. No different than the laws of physics. Yet despite the fact the liberal cannot point to anywhere on the globe where socialism has worked, THIS time they assure us, it will! Since the voter keeps sending the same crooks back to steal their money again and again, why should anything change? Ultimately, while Congress is nothing but liars and frauds, it is the American voter who is responsible. And the American non-voter.]
