Bureaucracies Are Authoritarian Too | Jeffrey A. Tucker
Great food for thought about personal freedom."And we should never forget that every rule in the books, every regulation and code, is ultimately backed by the power of the State to force you against your will. You don't need a strongman with a populist appeal to realize authoritarianism; it can also emanate from a legion of petty bureaucrats who are just following the law and regulations.
To dismantle such a regime means rejecting authority as a means of social control. It means trusting freedom."
