Lately, it has been easy to become discouraged by the barrage of statist rhetoric and actions coming from federal, state and local government--especially given the apparent wide public support these actions are receiving. I am always grateful for the occasional article which injects a bit of optimism into the debate. Perspectives like that conveyed in the article linked below provide a helpful reminder of how it takes time to change the assumptions held by a culture, and the importance of working to lay the groundwork. I particularly liked the parallel the author draws between the spread of ideas and the Austrian theory of capital structure. I hope you too can receive a bit of a boost to help you carry on.
