WFB Jr. Sums Congress Up

Fire of Liberty

I was over at Richard Brookhiser's(a fine historian, author, and writer) blog Right Time, Right Place and came across a forty year old statement by William F. Buckley Jr. on Congress that rings true today. Here's the quote:

"decisions made between nine and five in Washington office rooms, where the oligarchs of the Affluent Society sit, allocating complaints and solutions to communities represented by pins on the map"

Very interesting site you got here. I found it randomly while looking through fans of Hayek on blogger. I am a grad student in Chicago and an aspiring writer with a blog of my own (rjmoeller.com). Check it out some time. Take care.
