Best argument for limited government



Jon Corzine's testimony regarding the disappearance of many hundreds of millions of his customers' money: "I simply do not know where the money is, or why the accounts have not been reconciled to date."

As Kevin Williamson notes:

Why should we believe that the motives of people in (cough, cough) “public service” are different from the motives of people in the for-profit sector? Was Jon Corzine a rapacious self-seeker at Goldman Sachs, then a public-spirited man when he was in the Senate and in New Jersey’s governorship, only to revert to form when he went to MF Global? If you doubt that this is true, and suspect that Jon Corzine was the same guy all along, why would you want to give government more power?
