“Do not try and bend the spoon – that’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth…
“There is no spoon.” – The Matrix
Don’t try to stop government from seeking power. That’s impossible. Instead, realize the truth: limited government does not exist. That means we need many governments competing and limiting each other’s power through fighting, usurpation and jockeying for tax dollars
Don’t try to bend the spoon!
In reality, most attempts to provide limited government (ie. government that does not trend towards tyranny) are very much like trying to bend the spoon. We have to realize this truth – there is no spoon - before we can understand the failures of the last century – failures of the conservative movement, the reform movement and before that the liberal movement. All of these movements attempted in one way or another to give us “limited” government.
We still don’t have it.
