Critical masses

Karen De Coster offers an interesting post this morning about citizen tyrants and the danger of placing too much faith in “the masses”:

“I am extremely suspicious of (and therefore immediately distrust) any person who wants laws against anything that is behavior-oriented. ... They rubber-stamp the state’s agenda with delight. Again and again, these parsimonious sycophants voluntarily choose to become cheerleaders for the state and its agenda, in spite of the fact that, at some point, that agenda will clash with their own. But I guess, in their usual one-day-at-a-time custom, they’ll ‘cross that bridge’ when they get to it. Scrutinizing the inconsistencies of these schnooks is about as difficult as scratching one’s ass.”
