Despots, dictators, and power hungry presidents arise in an atmosphere of fear, scarce resources, hopelessness, and misery. As the power of the central government grows the freedoms, liberties and rights of the people are diminished and ultimately relinquished.
“Whenever the economic life of a nation becomes precarious, the central government is forced to assume additional responsibilities for the general welfare. It must work out elaborate plans for dealing with a critical situation; it must impose ever greater restrictions upon the activities of its subjects; and if, as is very likely, worsening economic conditions result in political unrest, or open rebellion, the central government must intervene to preserve public order and its own authority. More and more power is thus concentrated in the hands of the executives and their bureaucratic managers.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited – 1958

The Supreme Court’s decision in Hobby Lobby has sparked substantial outcry and public debate, but the real litigation over PPACA implementation is just beginning. However important Hobby Lobby may be for the law of religious accommodation, its effect on the implementation of the PPACA is relatively minor. The same cannot be said for other cases that are working their way through the federal courts, and further litigation is inevitable.
One set of cases, including Halbig v. Burwell pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, challenges the legality of an IRS rule authorizing tax credits for the purchase of health insurance in federal exchanges. A decision in Halbig is expected shortly, as is a decision in a parallel case pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit (King v. Burwell). Two other cases are pending in federal district courts in Indiana and Oklahoma.

The greatest problem we have is misinformation. People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.
