Richman's Law

0 Views

We all know (or should know) Rockwell's Law: "Always believe the opposite of what state officials tell you, and the corollary, always do the opposite of what they advise you." But here is another profound truth. This one is Richman's Law, from Sheldon Richman, the editor of The Freeman. In his article in the March 2009 issue of Freedom Daily (not online yet) titled "The Madoff Scandal Exposes Government Failure," Richman says: "No matter how much the government controls the economic system, any problem will be blamed on whatever small zone of freedom that remains."
