The difference between children and adults is that children don’t see costs. Whenever we encounter “good” emerging from the state (any state), we must remember to count the cost.
- How glorious the panegyrics and funerals for soldiers, but who precisely sent them out to die to revive dead political careers?
- Improved “social” conditions in prisons? Well, who kidnapped them in the first place?
- Obelisks, architectural feats, imperial gardens? Awing. One question, though: how many children are starving to pay the price in numerous taxes and inflation and minimum wage criminalization? Even supposed “staples” have VAT.
