Hillary’s Let Them Eat Cake Moment

Hillary Clinton recently said that drugs can’t be legalized because “there is just too much money in it” — in the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression. One is reminded of the legend of Marie Antoinette supposedly saying, on the brink of the French Revolution, when told the people of France had no bread “Let them eat cake”.

Anarchist Talking Point: What might seemingly make sense in terms of what a reasonable person might think is “good policy” or “sensible reform” will always take a back seat to the demands of maintaining political power. Reform efforts are a losing proposition compared to abolition of the state.
