"America and its Constitution, of course, were works in progress. Still to be engaged after 1789 were the blight of slavery, the casualties of the Industrial Revolution, the periodic financial panics and depressions. Although the Constitution’s bias against action was a particular challenge in emergencies, government nonetheless took on expanded responsibilities beginning in the Franklin Roosevelt era, with the broad consent -- even the acclaim -- of the governed." [editor's note: Where to begin? As usual, Mr. Kuttner has a rather large kernel of truth within the "goo-goo cluster" of statism-worship. I'll let the reader sift through to find the gems - SAT] (09/20/11)
