EDITORIAL:         This Time Will Be Different …     

                                That “There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch” is folk wisdom; “In the sweat of they face shalt thou eat bread” is Biblical. They combine to illustrate the perennial human understanding that in this universe, nothing is free. Those desiring a more detailed explanation may consult any physicist handy. Nevertheless, we continue voting for politicians who promise to release us from that reality via the use of government; that is, we hire the wolf to guard the flock. We have done so throughout our history, raising the idea that maybe there is human DNA that carries the message: “This time will be different.”                 It is said to be impossible to swindle an honest man; a swindler needs a little greed in his mark. But reality provides swindlers and marks aplenty; if it did not there would be no need for churches or governments … Today, a new generation of post-Christian, post-Classical Liberal Americans are abandoning churches and empowering government to provide the free lunch to which they somehow seem to feel entitled; maybe this time will be different?
