  • Brilliant commentary!

    One observation I must make is with respect to Marx’s infamous comment that “religion is the opiate of the masses”. Anyone who has his eyes open will realize that Marx was dead wrong. However, a much more accurate assessment of our current situation would be that “Government is the opiate of the masses”.

    In fact, government is the crystal meth of personal responsibility and free will – seductive, addictive and ultimately fatal.

    • “Government is the crystal meth of personal responsibility and free will…”

      Really, really like that phrase, G. Proskiw. And like meth, it results in a lot of activity, and not a lot getting done.
