Three radio events yesterday, all related to my post Obama and Warren cribbed “build it” narrative from progressive Berkeley Professor.
2. I was a guest on the Lars Larson Show which runs nationally. The portion referred to in the title appears at 4:05 of the audio.
Am I allowed to quote myself?
“The citizen is born indebted to the government because the government has provided the road that the trucks used to build the hospital that citizen was born in, and the road that the parents used to drive the citizen home, etcetera etcetera. It’s kind of the whole Julia notion that Obama put forward in his campaign, that the government is there and we owe something to the government rather than the other way around. And I think it is a fundamental transformation, to kind of paraphrase Obama, of the way we look at the role between the individual and the state…. Rather than simply funding services, you’re paying back a debt that you were born with.”
