Statism

MARCH 30, 2013

Statism is an ideology that supports the use of the government in order to attain specific ends beyond the defense of rights to property and person. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of the state to sponsor welfare programs, wars of aggression, and implementation of price controls and tariffs. This employment of state power is not in the defense of its citizen and their properties and therefore occurs in opposition to individual liberty.

Unfortunately, educating people about phenomena that are counterintuitive, not-so-easy to remember, and suggest our individual lack of human control (for starters) can seem like an uphill battle in the war of ideas. So we sally forth into a kind of wilderness, an economic fairyland. We are myth busters in a world where people crave myths more than reality. Why do they so readily embrace untruth? Primarily because the immediate costs of doing so are so low and the psychic benefits are so high.
