Totalitarian Democracy

Bill O'Neill, an objectivist correspondant in Holland, PA, sent me this piece about the infamous Kelo case. Of course, such a thing wouldn't make a scandal in France, where it is well understood that the government can do anything in the name of the public good. America may be becoming a Totalitarian Democracy, France already is one. Démocratie Absolue de Droit Divin. Oh well.

NB: so as to provide a disincentive for people holding political power to destroy liberties too obviously, you may join this pledge, or at least consider visiting the hotel when (and if) it is built.

Correct name for our style of government: Totalitarian Democracy
