#76 - The Useful Idiot: The dangers of human run institutions and government
People don't understand the danger of institutions run by humans. Human nature does not change, and that is why every government in history has failed at one point or another. It's why tyrants are the rule rather than the exception. And it's why those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
Institutions will always always always fall victim to the same things.
Few companies survive in the long run because the founders who made it successful cannot adapt to changing times and the trappings of success and power. So they usually crumble from the inside.
Government is the same. The government we have today is massive. It is not what the founding fathers had in mind. The constitution and bill of rights were intended to keep the government in check and as small as possible.
