Thought for the day


**Posted by Phineas

Roger Kimball quoting pollster Scott Rasmussen on the B-side of the entitlement mentality:

All this is true, and it deserves our constant attention. But Scott Rasmussen shifts his focus to the other side of the equation, one which I tried to adumbrate last week in my column “Wards and Warders.” In order to work, the dependency agenda needs not only to cultivate the sheep, a population of dependents. It also needs to foster a population of controlling bureaucrats, the shepherds or warders of the system. And this brings us to what Rasmussen calls “the real entitlement mentality that threatens to bankrupt the nation: A political class that feels entitled to rule over the rest of us.”

(Emphasis added)

One of those things that’s so obvious once said, you wonder how you never realized it before.
