Might Makes Right – And Left

Don Boudreaux makes a fine point:

Just as many on the right naively fantasize that foreign problems are best solved by force, “liberals” fantasize that domestic problems – real and imaginary – are best solved by force.

Given that some degree of government is essential, it is always tempting to use the power of government to force other people to change their behavior to become more to your liking. This is the essence of politics.
