Ron Paul And Hitler Belong Together

At least that’s what our specious notions of left and right claim.

Walter Block explains why the notion of left and right is wrong.

You’ll love this.

Where I differ every-so-slightly from Block, is that I believe the political spectrum can be adequately described along one line.  That line being defined by the amount of government involvement a particular political philosophy entails.

Since we can stipulate that government is an evil institution that acts with force against innocent people, we can say evil increases the more government exists.   I see no distinction between evil, coercion, and government.  This maxim holds true no matter how far down the spectrum one choses to go.   Ultimately we see a direct correlation between the amount of State a society has and the amount of people needlessly killed.
