This article is from the link I suggested in the previous thread.  It fits in very well with the discussion on the "Deep State."

This could be considered TR.

Great article.

It may not be directly TR, however, this kind of subject should really be in the man section of the forum

It doesn't make sense to educate. Just ignore them.

What matters is Congressmen, even those Democrats in urban districts, are reminded behind closed doors by the Agriculture lobbies, policy wonks, and political scientists and historians that people in societies will put up with almost anything a government does. Corruption and abuse by despots has been tolerated by societies the world over for time immemorial.... but people will not tolerate starvation or even hunger....

Hunger is the Feedstock of Revolution.

There was little or no starvation leading up to the American Revolution. Oddly enough, today, we face far more oppression than the founders, and many of us vote for more.

Yes and no.  Global markets can exist resulting in benefits to all participants and therefore are not a myth.

But autonomous global markets do not exist in a world with bloated over reaching government and the crony capitalists that run them.
