"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
-- Frederic Bastiat, 1845
On Tuesday, I listened to New York Times financial columnist Gretchen Morgenson at Weber State University, and the whole thing left me very depressed.
Yeah, I know: She's a liberal media type. But would a liberal leave me depressed, despondent, wondering if there's any hope?
Is there any hope? She sure frowned a lot.
