Apologies

Way back in the late 1980’s, I had a professor (civi lit, I think. I cannot recall his name, but can clearly see his face: longish, salt-and-pepper hair and a 1970’s porn-stache) who said that, if they could, many would push the government for guaranteed income subsidies.


Naturally, I argued vociferously with him.


“People,” I said, “are not that dumb. They understand that any money the government sends to them comes from their own taxes. What the government gives with one hand, it must first take with the other.”


Well . . . when I am wrong, I am wrong, and I will be the first to admit it. Apologies, professor.
