12/11/2005 Archived Entry: "Tony Blair tells exactly why government keeps growing"
THIS STATEMENT FROM BRITAIN'S TINY BLUR (corrected link!) shows exactly why government will grow and grow and become more oppressive all the time. Create social problems via government action, then "solve" those problems with more government action, all the while claiming to defend helpless citizens against crime and chaos.
Notice that he admits that guns and (criminal) willingness to use them both became more of a problem following Britain's ban. But does the thought of repealing the ban occur to him? Nooooooo. Not that. Never. Instead government needs to "reform" the justice system to take away more individual rights that have prevailed for hundreds of years.
(Thanks to SJ for the link.)
