“The greatest danger to liberty today comes from the men who are most needed and most powerful in modern government, namely, the efficient expert administrators exclusively concerned with what they regard as the public good.” —Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992)
The most intelligent decisions are made on the free market of ideas in a free flow of information. This will always yield a force of order that works far better than the best sort of governmental control. This is exponentially so the greater the amount of government control is involved. Time and again, we are shown that we cannot rely on people whose desires outstrip their understanding.
