People have not changed much over the millennia regarding needs, desires and incentives. These impact and are impacted by policies created by government. Some of those policies have promoted progress and freedom while others have resulted in terrible violations of freedom and needless poverty.

Quotes From The Book
- Regarding capitalism vs. socialism, “There is nothing wrong with any of the isms; people operating in those systems are the problem.”
- “A true, direct democracy would have all citizens vote on everything, also known as majoritarianism…all of which most people in this country would be utterly incapable of understanding enough to cast an educated vote. That is why we are a republic, where we democratically elect representatives who are also utterly incapable of understanding enough to cast an educated vote.”
- “If something as relatively easy to measure and study like nutrition science is complicated and unsettled, climate science has to be complicated to the nth power and very unsettled.”
- “The Bern believes he has a magic wand that will take us to Nirvana, but it is really a pipe bomb with a timer on it.”
- “If something is not free, no one has a right to it.”
- “The best equalizer in history has been economic growth, not government handouts.”
