I think you’ll be struck by guest blogger Steven Hayward’s Powerline entry on Nancy Pelosi, the administrative state, and the removal of politics from … politics! Hayward writes:LA replies:
Yes, Pelosi’s remark reveals a basic truth about liberalism which I’ve often pointed to. Liberals don’t want democracy, they don’t want majority rule, which they see as unfair, unequal, and oppressive. They want management from above by the liberal elite which is the guardian of everyone’s equal rights and which knows what is best for everyone. In Europe, of course, that approach to politics is already fully institutionalized, and liberals want to bring it to America as well.
