Third Quote from Liberty and Tyranny

The Statist veils his pursuits in moral indignation, intoning in high dudgeon the injustices and inequities of liberty and life itself, for which only he can provide justice and bring a righteous resolution. And when the resolution proves elusive, as it undoubtedly does--whether the Marxist promise of "the workers' paradise" or the Great Society's "war on poverty"--the Statist demands ever more authority to wring out the imperfections of mankind's existence.
You've noticed this, haven't you? People on the Left are perpetually convinced that the solution is more government. They might prefer to call it something else, like a more expanded program or something, but the reality is that if what they've already put in place isn't working, they blame it on someone somehow undermining their splendid plans and demand bigger programs, more spending, and more authority so that they can make things work better--and, of course, they seldom, if ever, actually do work better.

One of the most ironic things is the statist's, or Leftist's, pronounced tendency toward more government whilst claiming to fear right-wing totalitarianism. It's positively weird. Or pathetically blankin' stupid. Take yer pick.
