Political Realism

During the pandering election season, it’s easy to get swept up in politics. We all have our preferences, either liking some candidate more or disliking some candidate less. Don Boudreaux has written a great piece that puts it all in perspective. His little essay is so good that I’ve put it in my Great Posts Notebook, which is where I flag anything I consider “must read” material.

Anyone who sets out to be a professional politician must be some kind of rascal. Every now and then you find someone who accidentally falls into political office, usually for some special purpose, but that’s rather rare. Generally, politicians should be regarded with suspicion as latent criminals and con artists.
