Dr. FranklinStein

"...we are fashioning an instrument of unimagined power for the establishment of a morally better world." - FDR, second inaugural.

A power grab cloaked in morality?

How many countless tyrants throughout the ages have dissembled thusly?

FDR was speaking of course, about the aspiration of Big Government.

It's taking me some time, but I hope to be soon finished typing up my notes on the great book - The Forgotten Man - A New History of the Great Depression.

I highly recommend this one not only because of the stark historical parallels between the Depression and our current economic malaise, but also because much of today's problems were actually born of FDR and his depraved small mind.

Check your local libraries.

i have a theory that purely democratic systems eventually lead to big government and increasingly socialist ideas.

I guess thats obvious and we are seeing it in action.
