A recent NPR broadcast featured an Ivy league college professor discussing the role of government. He thinks people are basically bad and government is therefore needed to rein-in those natural tendencies. This view is one of the clearest and most basic differences between the Left and Right. Why is it always a college professor and often an Ivy League college professor? 🙂
By the way, what if he’s right, and man is basically evil? Hmm, where do go from there?
