Is Limited Government an Oxymoron?
Joining Host Dennis McCuistion are:
- Thomas E. Woods JR., PhD, Senior Fellow of Ludwig von Mises Institute and author of Meltdown
- Doug Casey, Investor in The Casey Report
Doug Casey is not a fan of government as it is as he believes it coerces opinions. He feels entrepreneurs would be the better solution to many issues.
Dennis asks: Isn’t this anarchy?
In response, we find that Doug Casey believes that government’s role in a civil society is to protect us from force, inside and outside the bailiwick… and to adjudicate in a fair court system. He asserts that Government is a busy body and power monger and it does not serve a useful purpose.
Thomas Woods believes that we need to return to the foundation of the US Constitution and 10th amendment. He believes that too many Think Tanks are chasing a unicorn with their asking for funding to curb spending, etc. and nothing happens. He says of Government that it has a monopoly to tax and that moral principles are abandoned when it comes to government. Government fails on absolute standards of society.
