Quote of the Day–Joe Huffman(11/23/2012)

The problem is one of information. You, a fully functional adult, know more than anyone else about your situation and what is best for you. You know a lot more about your family than people not in your family. You know more about how to do your job than people that don’t do you job. You know more about your community than people outside your community. And you know a lot more about your situation than does the mayor of your city, the governor of your state, and the president of the country. Central planning fails because the people with the most information about the situation are not making the decisions.

[QFMFT.  Seriously, that sentence above is something that many people do not understand or realize.  Why they lack the comprehension to understand it I don’t know.  The only person that can make the best decisions for you and your family is yourself.  You are the only one with all the information to make an effective decision.

This is why I really don’t like other people making decisions for me, it’s never really done with my best interests at hand. –B]

    Yep, good quote; and usually those making the decisions REALLY don’t care about you the individual or your family either…

    Bill Whittle did something on this a while ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0MESB6VZM4

    They always put know-nothings in charge, if they knew how to do anything useful, they’d already be doing it. You never put productive people in charge, because they are harder to replace in their regular job. Like I once told a supervisor of mine: “Any idiot can be a boss; what’s hard to find is a good helper”.

    It’s entirely true but it’s not the point. Central planning fails because it denies our humanity, or rather it succeeds because it was intended from the outset to deny our humanity.
