If I Wanted America to Fail

  • Make cheap energy expensive
  • Empower un-elected bureaucrats to all but outlaw the most abundant sources of energy
  • Imply cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes
  • Ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining, and farming, while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes, and food on their tables
  • Never teach children that the free market is the only force in human history to uplift the poor, establish the middle class, and create lasting prosperity
  • Create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones… to be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers, and lobbyist could understand them
  • Ridicule as ‘flat earthers’ those that urge low energy costs by increasing supply
  • Enlist the sympathetic media to drown out the evangelists of common sense reminding people of the laws of supply and demand
  • Empower unaccountable bureaucracies seated in a distant capital to bully Americans out of their dreams and property rights
  • For every concern, I’d invent a crisis…. and for every crisis, I’d invent the cause
  • Make it more fashionable to resent success than to seek it
  • Make taxpayers pay for my lawyers
  • Convince Americans the Europe has it right and that America has it wrong
  • Prey on the goodness and decency of ordinary Americans, only need to convince them that all of this is for the greater good
  • I wouldn’t change a thing
