People in Government are NOT smarter or more virtuous

than people outside Government. This is a truism of course but because people in government have extraordinary power and because the natural tendency of ALL of us is to self-justify and self-aggrandize people in government tend to believe they can make better decisions than the people they "govern." Of course this is NOT true. In fact, their decisions are almost always flawed by the most intoxicating of all the vices, power over other people's lives.
