On Patrol With Ayn

It was Ayn Rand who pointed out that the government has limited power to deal with the law abiding, therefore tyrants must seek to make it impossible for any honest man not to break the law. The Gramscians take this to the next level with their determination to ensure that perverse incentives should be instutionalised, such that blind, senseless obediance is rewarded, while the conscientious are hunted down. In this way previously effective bodies can be hijacked by the culture warriors. For a perfect example of that method in action, look no further than this case.
