I always respected Michelle Maulkin for her intellect, but I think I found a new woman to gain my respect. Starr Parker, she has found her way to loving liberty despite being a victim of the government hand out system.
The conversation is about the road to Socialism.
I think they are a bit off though. We are actually on the road to Fascism. There is a difference. In Fascism, the government does not actually take over businesses entirely, they essentially buy their way into them and hold a large enough amount of a business so that their guy is able to sit in the board room. Fascism is possible without a dictatorship like Mussolini or Hitler. The US progressives admired the fascists of Europe in the first half of the 20th century. Roosevelt himself created the N.R.A.(National Recovery Administration) that acted as the Governments agent to oversee all businesses in a similar way that Mussolini set up his own system.
OK, enough of the history lesson. The main point is that this Starr Parker is very admirable.
