Trust Us

George Will on ‘Trust Us’

by DON BOUDREAUX on JUNE 12, 2013

in MYTHS AND FALLACIES, POLITICS

Government is not, by its nature, a trustworthy agency. On which fact, here’s the great George Will.  (And here’s the concluding paragraph of his most-recent column):



Government requires trust. Government by progressives, however, demands such inordinate amounts of trust that the demand itself should provoke distrust. Progressivism can be distilled into two words: “Trust us.” The antecedent of the pronoun is: The wise, disinterested experts through whom the vast powers of the regulatory state’s executive branch will deliver progress for our own good, as the executive branch understands this, whether we understand it or not. Lois Lerner is the scowling face of this state, which has earned Americans’ distrust.
