Bravo to Stossel for looking to "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress" for government reform ideas.
But this quote shouldn't go without repeating:
There is no greater threat to individual freedom and autonomy than government. The threat from private freelance crime is small potatoes compared to the daily usurpations of the state, with its taxation, regulation, privilege-granting, inflation and war.
The first line, by itself, deserves commitment to memory.
