The Jane Galt Line

Megan McArdle has an incisive post arguing (unintentionall) in favor of my old idea that government was the voodoo of the 20th Century.

Quick explaination: the belief of left- and right-wing idiots that with just the right law, you could have a perfect society, or make pi equal to three, or make water run uphill, or Social Security solvent.

Let’s hope the 21st dispells that murderous bit of mysticism.
