The Left and the Right vs. Liberty

[Lew] Rockwell shows that when people on the political right point to "liberal" increases in government power and say, "They're attacking freedom!" they are correct — as are those on the political left who point to "conservative" increases in government power and say the same thing. The problem Rockwell illuminates is that both camps are blind to the damage done by their own impulses to expand the power of the State. A massive, unrestrained government is a bull in a china shop.
-- from "Cultivating Sound Ideas" by George C. Leef
