social policy - pursuing betterment

From the weblog The Standard Review
"The only practical way for government to operate effectively is to teach people to make wise choices and reward them for doing so in order for them to feel empowered by their ability.

"There is no worse crime perpetrated against the planet than for people engaged in the practice of governing choosing to encourage the public to make unwise choices as well as intentionally creating unfairness, inequality, and exploiting people based on class distinctions.

"When we choose to believe that our betterment will result from glorifying this system, we are involved in the very same crime".
