"Government is frequently proposed as a panacea for seemingly every problem.  But since government is just people with less relevant information and worse incentives than those acting for themselves, backed with coercive power, it is a false promise whose main result is the evisceration of liberty.  The government can only benefit everyone when tightly constrained to enforcing only equal, 'natural' rights for all, reserving other choices to individuals."
